Local Marketing Firm Making an Impact on Future Marketing Professionals
AUSTIN, Texas, January 13, 2014 – Christa Kleinhans Tuttle, President of Launch Marketing, recently served as a guest lecturer and project mentor at Southwestern University, a nationally recognized undergraduate liberal arts college with an enrollment of 1,500 students. Christa partnered with Dr. Debika Sihi, Assistant Professor of the Strategic Marketing Problems course, to develop a semester long project for undergraduate students to create an integrated marketing strategy for a real world client.
Instead of relying on a textbook, the hands-on assignment focused on having students work through a current marketing challenge faced by a local firm, so that they could tackle an issue they might actually face in their career. Professor Sihi said, “Christa presented the students a business project simulated from actual client work. Through this project, the students gained experience collecting primary and secondary data and developing a feasible, yet creative, marketing plan.”
Christa has a reputation for providing mentorship to students and entrepreneurs in the local Austin community. She enjoys fostering the growth of the next generation of marketing professionals and stated, “This practical approach to learning about marketing provides a lot of value for college students transitioning from a college environment to the work place and I’m excited about the opportunity to have a positive impact on these future marketers.”
