Marketing students support Hispanic Chamber of Commerce businesses

Businesses affiliated with the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of Metro Denver this semester joined a list of more than 150 companies and organizations that have grown their businesses with the help of marketing students.

The students, enrolled in the Senior Seminar Marketing course, are participating in the Marketing Department’s Open for Business program, which offers marketing minors an opportunity to apply what they have learned in class by developing strategic marketing plans for real businesses.

“The College of Business has been doing this since 2003, and the first couple of semesters we had to recruit businesses to participate. Now we have a waiting list,” said Senior Lecturer of Marketing Darrin Duber-Smith, who is the founder of the program. “When the opportunity to work with Hispanic Chamber businesses was offered, we felt it was a great opportunity to support the University in achieving its mission and also help the local business community.”

When finished, the ties sport patterns ranging from traditional two-colored stripes to dinosaur and shark designs. There’s even a line of ties covered in miniature Colorado flags. The organic cotton fabric is printed in North Carolina, but all the ties are assembled and designed right here in Denver.
