2020 MDMC STUDENT AND FACULTY PROGRAM

shutterstock 250803685Every year, students bring incredible energy to MDMC thanks to their strong desire to learn.  We recognize that fact given MDMC is produced by a public university (the University of Missouri – St. Louis).  In 2019, student and faculty attendance was approximately 10% of the total attendance.  The remaining 90% were industry professionals.  This year MDMC is focusing on increasing that percentage by supporting student groups and faculty even more.  To support that goal, we are starting the "MDMC Student and Faculty Program."


Given the convenient Midwest location of this conference and the amazing price point (tickets only $75 for students), MDMC provides a unique opportunity for faculty in the field of digital and social media marketing, public relations, communications, advertising, or media studies to bring their entire class for an experiential opportunity of a lifetime. 

At MDMC, students will have an opportunity to meet and hear from amazing speakers from Google, Microsoft, Johnson & Johnson, LinkedIn and more. Students will also have many networking opportunities to take advantage of.
