Prashant Malaviya

All roads lead to marketing, and Prashant Malaviya, Associate Professor of Marketing for Georgetown University, knows this best. Prashant Malaviya decided he wanted more out of his career. While working towards his M.B.A., he was inevitably led back to marketing. He developed a passion for researching the theories of marketing, which turned him towards a career in academia. “I enjoy the human side of business, and I find marketing to be more exciting, colorful, and creative than other business disciplines” said Malaviya. After relocating, he continued his membership and joined the AMADC chapter to stay connected to the dynamic and evolving nature of the marketing industry within the Washington metropolitan area. Find out how Prashant Malaviya stays involved and Gets Ahead by reading this month’s Member Spotlight.
