As part of its goal to increase the value proposition to members, AMA has launched a series of Certificate Programs designed just for student members of the AMA. Certificates prepare students for life beyond college, and make you more marketable to employers. The certificate programs are free of charge to dues-paying AMA student members (full time undergraduate and full time graduate, not currently employed full time). They are not available to professional or academic members or non-members of the AMA.
Note: These are not certification programs or applicable for college credit. They are meant to supplement student education and make AMA students more marketable in their post-collegiate job search.
Upon notification of completion, the AMA will email students a PDF certificate of completion and encourages students to list their achievement on their resume.

Marketing Research Certificate for AMA Collegiate Members
The Marketing Research Certificate Program is not designed to make everyone research experts. Rather, we expose Collegiate AMA Members to a variety of research topics as a means of proving students with an understanding of what a career in marketing research entails, basic knowledge about sound research practices and insight into key research analytics and software programs like SPSS and Survey Monkey. This certificate program is only available to current AMA student members (full time undergraduate and full time graduate, not currently employed full time). Note: this program is not available to those that are not full time students.
