CHAPTER OVERVIEW The Hofstra American Marketing Association (HAMA) is the largest, pre-professional organization at Hofstra University. HAMA takes pride in producing the next generation of marketers. In conjunction with the Frank G. Zarb School of Business, we offer a number of opportunities for not only marketing majors, but for all business majors. HAMA has built a strong membership base and continues to grow, not only in number, but also in the respect endowed from the business school and the university as a whole.

Mission Statement HAMA is a student-run professional business organization that seeks to develop the best and brightest marketing students by providing valuable hands-on career and leadership experience and educational support.

2010 – 2011 Theme: “Marketing: Controlling Our Future” The organizational theme implemented this year is “Marketing: Controlling Our Future.” In addition to educating our members about the influence of marketing, we assist them in gaining a control of their future by helping them find their vision, design a plan, and take action. This will be accomplished through quality events that provide our members with valuable marketing and networking experience.
