Harbour Trust Sponsors Digital Marketing Competition

HAMMOND & WESTVILLE, IN, August 20, 2019 – Purdue University Northwest’s (PNW) College of Business is excited to partner with Harbour Trust & Investment Management Company for the first annual Digital Marketing Competition (DMC).

Teams across the world are already hard at work researching and formulating their marketing strategies to help Harbour Trust grow their business throughout the U.S.

“Harbour Trust & Investment Company is pleased to announce a collaborative effort with PNW’s College of Business. We’ve developed a challenging case study to create a strategic marketing campaign for Harbour. Through the efforts of the College of Business, this opportunity has been introduced to approximately 1,800 professors across the world.”

The DMC consists of two-rounds. In round one, student teams submit an 8-minute video of their campaign ideas to be reviewed by a panel of digital marketing professionals. Five teams will be selected from the submissions and invited to compete at the finals on December 7thin the new White Lodging Professional Sales Lab at Purdue University Northwest’s Hammond campus. 

Finalists will pitch their marketing strategies directly to Harbour Trust’s leadership team and digital marketing professionals, in the hopes of winning one of three top prizes: $1,000 for first place, $500 for second, and $250 for third place.

The campaign from the first place team will also be used by Harbour Trust as the basis for future growth and expansion of their organization.
