By Mel Beasley, CSB Marketing Assistant with Eva James, Cameron School of Business B.S. BA -  Marketing Strategy Concentration '19

With an expected graduation year of 2019, Eva James takes her education seriously at the young age of 21. She is majoring in marketing strategy and minoring in digital arts and has maintained her mention on the Top 10 List for marketing concentrations for the last couple years. Though she keeps her eyes laser-focused on academic success, she knows how to relax with friends during her free time. She describes herself as a “happy-go-lucky” person who knows how to roll with the punches. When the stresses of everyday life get too overwhelming, Eva falls on her love of art for support by drawing sketches. We recently interviewed Eva about her experience at the business school.

It’s hard to imagine where you might end up after college because the constant classes and homework often make us feel like we’ll be here forever. Though you might not see it now, everything you’re doing in college at this moment is shaping you as a professional in the future. International MBA grad, Corinne Walker, is a great example of this, and we interviewed her to gain some insight on her college and career journey. Walker has a B.S. in marketing and her IMBA concentration was also in marketing. She spent time studying in Valencia, Spain, and now works as a marketing professional at a company called Geo Owl.

Blockchain, the distributed cryptographic ledger technology that has given rise to the cryptocurrency craze, is now becoming a building block in business school curriculum. Top business schools, such as Duke, MIT, and Harvard, have added a series of courses in blockchain technology to their programs over the past two years and Stanford University recently launched a Center for Blockchain Research. The emergence and rapid expansion of courses designed around blockchain development and cryptography should come as no surprise, as Upwork ranked blockchain as the fastest growing freelance skill in the United States for the second consecutive quarter. These facts may lead you to ask a few basic questions:

This employee profile is from UNCW’s ‘We Are UNCW’ series and was posted on March 20, 2018.

After 21 years primarily in photography sales on the Las Vegas Strip, Mark Pelletier decided it was time for a change.

“I was doing sales and sales management for a long time; in fact, I’d kind of done it all sales-wise,” he said with a chuckle. “I got into academia late. I went back to school to get my marketing degree, and I just fell in love with it.”

Guest Blogger: Sydney Payne, CSB BSBA – Marketing/Professional Sales concentration ’18; Sydney was our “Featured Seahawk” for the week of March 19, 2018.

Customer Delight (Not Satisfaction) Is Key To Bottom Line

Posted by Cameron School of Business on Jul 6, 2017 4:16:30 PM

Guest Blogger: Dr. Donald Barnes, Associate Professor of Marketing, Cameron School of Business

Customer satisfaction is no longer enough to ensure profitable customer relationships. Satisfied customers are not loyal or willing to tell others about your business and how great it is; they are simply satisfied. Their expectations were met. Why would they tell anyone about that?

I am a TABSA student from Spain, and I am currently working to receive a dual degree from the Cameron School of Business at UNCW and my home university, Universidad de Valencia, in Marketing Strategy and International Business. Participating in the Cameron Executive Network (CEN) Program has been one of the best things I have done during my time at UNCW. My mentor has been extremely helpful in explaining the job search process in the US. She started by identifying my skills and capabilities as well as areas of improvement to better my position myself in the business world. She coached me in resume and cover letter writing as well as in internship search and interview skills. Due to her help I was able to get an internship in a tech company in Spain. We will continue to work this year to get an internship in the US.
