Marketing is a discipline that has both a holistic/integrative purpose and distinct areas of focus. AMA Academic Special Interest Group leaders must have the skills to both foster a powerful sense of community within these distinct areas while also contributing to cross-discipline dialogue. Such leaders are vital to the growth of the AMA, but more importantly to the advancement of the art and science of marketing itself. Learn more about the 17 Academic Special Interest Groups (SIGs).
