The Company’s bursaries support activities and research projects of a quality likely to advance marketing education or the practice of marketing.
The concept behind the Marketors awards is to showcase the Company as being at the forefront of raising standards within the Marketing profession. Whether it be from a pure philanthropic posture as with our Scholarships and Bursaries which create opportunities for attendance on programmes, or our Research Awards which fund study into specific aspects of the Marketing mix or with our prestigious Educational Awards which aim to further excellence in Marketing teaching and learning; all position the Marketors as more than just simply a social network.
The Educational Awards fall into three distinct categories:
1. Business School Awards
We aim to reward outstanding learning by annually inviting a select number of leading UK Business Schools to submit a Project/Paper produced by a student from their Marketing Masters programmes/MBAs.The Education Committee then make a valued judgement on the quality of the submission and make seven Awards to the students who have produced the work.
2. The Marketing Academy Awards
Our aim to improve the quality of Marketing teaching in our Business Schools is recognised through our Awards to the Marketing Academy (the Marketing faculty association) for the “Teacher of the Year” and for the best Research Paper submitted by a Marketing academic.
3. Schools Business and Enterprise support
We are recognising the importance of making marketing a secondary school topic by supporting a Business and Enterprise competition in a leading City Based School. We intend to progress this imitative by opening up this sponsorship to the other Schools, both State and Private) that have close links to the City of London.
These Educational Awards are at the forefront of our Awards portfolio and ensure that our presence as the Livery Company for marketing professionals is a vibrant one.
