“The MS Marketing students from Texas A&M have brought unique and valuable skills to Dell’s marketing team. Over the past 3 years, we’ve increased our involvement with the program – the analytical capabilities, understanding of branding, and overall marketing acumen has been top-notch. Kudos to Dr. McDaniel and the entire staff. We have many Aggie marketers at Dell, and look forward to continuing that trend in years to come.”
