|The AEF is a 501(c)3 educational foundation that connects the marketing, advertising and academic communities. They are part of the Association of National Advertisers (ANA), the largest marketing trade association in the world, representing top global brands. In 2018, they launched the MADE (Marketing & Advertising Education) Program and have connected over 100 students with paid summer internships at top companies such as L’Oreal, IBM, McCann, Ogilvy, Sephora, NBCUniversal, Mastercard, ViacomCBS, Anheuser-Busch, BBDO and Deutsch. |
MADE Internship Opportunity functions as the “Common App” for marketing and advertising internships, making it easy for students to navigate a complex industry. Through this process, MADE exposes students to opportunities they may not have been aware of or thought they had access to. Organizations benefit from being able to select top talent from a pool that spans racial, ethnic, geographic, and socioeconomic groups, breaking down traditional barriers to finding strong talent.
Once a candidate applies, they are connected with potentially dozens of internship opportunities at their partner companies based on traits such as critical thinking, leadership potential and intellectual curiosity.
MADE is not just a summer internship program- they are cultivating a diverse community of marketing and advertising industry leaders through year-round virtual events, case competitions & resources.
During their info session, they will discuss how to apply, what they’re looking for in candidate, what sets candidates apart, and other tips.
Date: Wednesday, November 11

Today, the future is here, and it arrived much faster than anyone anticipated. In the turbulence of 2020, that reality comes with various complications, including a pandemic, economic instability, and concerns around privacy, transparency, and content safety.
These disruptions sped up the innovations that had been gradually taking hold over the past year in premium video and TV, and they brought the industry to a place where technology and data have become more valuable than anyone could have predicted.
