“We know that the students consider these type of graduate events important for them to forge relationships in the Advertising industry,” said Professor Peggy Barnwell, Coordinator of the Sheridan Advertising Management program.
“I had a great time at the networking event and was able to connect with many folks working in Media and Account Planning, said Wendy Shen, Advertising Management student.[slideshow]”What a great night we all had at the Post Grad Networking Event.
