M&M Mars and Department of Business Partnership

M&M Mars has partnered with the Elizabethtown College Department of Business to create an Executive Lecture Series geared toward bringing in senior level executives from various industries to talk about their businesses and engage students in discussions about programs that are offered to customers. Students are exposed to an assortment of executives that specialize in certain disciplines. This program is another example of Elizabethtown College’s Department of Business commitment to experiential learning. This collaboration provides a strong foundation for our students to apply key core business principles learned in our learning community. The M&M Mars partnership represents an example of how business and education can create bridges that accelerate the learning process for students. We want students to be able to interact with executives as well as demonstrate that they are capable of presenting views that represent the impact of how society benefits from firms, while at the same time government is placing constraints upon people and firms to create a level playing field in the market. Through the M&M Mars Executive Lecture series, students obtain a real world perspective of business. This relationship will further enhance the transformative educational learning experience our students will receive while at Elizabethtown College.
