Industry Connections

We foster a strong relationship with PromaxBDA, the leading global association for entertainment marketing professionals. In addition to attending the organization's conferences and sponsored campus events, our students compete in PromaxBDA contests and often win awards.

At the 2012 Promax Conference:

  • Kab Kaniess, Andrew Maas, and Matt Mielner were selected to be interns for the conference.
  • Ruth Wels and Aaron Evans were selected to participate in a highly competitive portfolio review with top industry executives.
  • Ruth Wels and Aaron Evans were both winners of the national Making the Cut student editing competition and were recognized at the Conference.

Our students have made their way into the following Los Angeles creative agencies as
