Marketing Alumni Class Takeover

The inaugural Alumni Class Takeover will be piloted in partnership with the Department of Entrepreneurship, Marketing and Social Innovation. The concept is very simple; alumni are invited to come back and "takeover" Mount Royal classrooms from March 9 to 13, 2020 by teaching a marketing class. Share the expertise you have gained since leaving our halls and help to create a richer learning experience for current students.
Below is the basic scope for participating alumni: 

  • The takeover will involve one class the week of March 9 to 13, 2020 and could be a full 90 minutes or a portion thereof.
  • Selected alumni will be matched with an appropriate class and will work directly with faculty to prepare a short, simple lesson plan. Alumni will be expected to prepare for the class (no winging it!), which may include leveraging existing learning resources, like PowerPoint slides.
  • Faculty will provide high-level direction on class outcomes for the date selected. Part of the takeover will include the alumna or alumnus talking about their career, experiences and link to their time at Mount Royal, however it is important that alumni are actually "teaching" content, rather than just telling stories.
  • Faculty who have relationships with current alumni are welcome to invite them back directly.

Limited space is available, and the deadline for applications is January 31, 2020. If you are an alum from the marketing program and are interested in participating in the Alumni Class Takeover, please email your resume and a link to your LinkedIn profile to Erika Holter at by January 31.
