Wharton Undergraduate Marketing Conference


2016. Surrounded by a myriad of choices, college students make thousands of small decisions every day. The website they read their news from, the shoes they wear, the meal they will buy and the app that they will post it to. The abundance of choice has pushed companies to grasp for further and further differentiation techniques. Luminous billboards have shrunk into minute screens, and established entities now struggle with their image: Youthful? Powerful? Revolutionary?

In a world where it seems that each company is ready to pounce on the other in order to take the market, how do these enterprises stand tall? How can they remain unique?

What is WUMC?

The Wharton Undergraduate Marketing Conference (WUMC) is the country’s premier undergraduate educational marketing conference. The conference aims to bring together industry trailblazers with college students from all over the nation in an effort to promote and conscientize on the role of marketing in the 21st century.
