February 2014 - CPG Camp - A Marketing & Brand Management Boot Camp

A marketing boot camp delivering the skill sets and industry connections to break into the highly competitive Consumer Packaged Goods industry. Our curriculum is specially designed by senior CPG brand managers and Ivy League MBAs.

Course Description

CPG Camp is an online marketing boot camp delivering the most critical skill sets and industry connections to break into the highly competitive Consumer Packaged Goods industry.

CPG Camp focuses on the real-world, relevant skills to hit the ground running on Day 1 of any full-time or internship position. Our curriculum is informed by an Advisory Board of senior CPG marketers from a variety of industries, and it is specifically designed to go beyond the theory taught at the University level.

Each training module takes 30 minutes and is comprised of video-based instruction and assignments that simulate true on-the-job responsibilities. The top-scoring participants will have the opportunity to interview at highly-respected CPG companies.

For our upcoming boot camp, we are pleased to announce that Johnson & Johnson (Band-Aid®, Aveeno®, Zyrtec®, Tylenol®, Neutrogena®) will be interviewing our top participants for both full-time and internship opportunities at the MBA and undergraduate levels.
