When Logan Margolis chose to attend Syracuse University’s Martin J. Whitman School of Management the decision opened new opportunities for him to combine his passion for music with his interest in marketing.

“The Whitman faculty and staff go out of their way to get to know students and help them in any way possible,” said Margolis. “This, in conjunction with all of the opportunities to get involved outside of class, has gotten me to where I am now.”

As a student majoring in marketing and management and minoring in music industry, Margolis has gained valuable skills and knowledge, which he has applied during numerous internships.

In his junior year, Margolis interned with the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame museum, where he assisted in transitioning the sales force to a new client management system aimed at meeting client-focused goals. He also worked on updating and redesigning the website and marketing materials to accurately reflect changes in rental packages, as well as secured event bookings revenue by meeting with clients to discuss logistics, venues and pricing.

While Margolis looks forward to participating in more music related internships, he also wishes to explore other uses of marketing.

This past summer, Margolis interned with Bloomberg L.P., helping the  teams covering corporations and international banks with generating leads, supporting clients and brainstorming innovative strategies. He also participated in extensive training on financial markets, terminal functionality and customer service strategies.

“I learned so much about the actual company and product but also about the corporate environment,” said Margolis. “There were multiple occasions where I had the opportunity to interact with top management – including Mike Bloomberg.”

Margolis’ internship was extended and he has accepted an offer to join Bloomberg L.P. in New York City in Sept. as part of a financial product analytics and sales program. He will serve as an analytics representative for two years. Afterward, he will move into core terminal sales.

On campus, Margolis is the president of Delta Sigma Pi and a Whitman ambassador.
