The mission of the International Advertising Education Committee is to promote and facilitate the American Academy of Advertising’s role as a leading forum for sharing knowledge about scholarship, education and practice in international advertising.


The committee will develop and propose initiatives to:

  1. Extend the global footprint of the academy through advertising conferences, meetings, workshops and activities around the world
  2. Promote international interests of academy members by identifying opportunities to internationalize learning, networking and professional development
  3. Strengthen the academy’s relations with peer advertising associations around the world
  4. Encourage growth of international membership in the academy
  5. Foster collaboration with professors from other countries to develop cross-cultural research skills and participate in research teams doing international/cross-cultural research
  6. Create an online clearing house/global information resource center for the study of international advertising research and practice
  7. Encourage internationalization of marketing communication/advertising/PR/ IMC programs in U.S. universities

Initiatives & Resources

Need some ads to illustrate that brilliant international advertising lecture? Looking for a research partner to start a dream project? Searching for a professional development opportunity far away from home?

Welcome to the AAA international advertising resource page. As each section of the website goes live, we hope to evolve into your one-stop-shop (or take-off point) for all things international in advertising teaching, research and professional activities.

We hope you find the site useful and visit often. Of course as an all-volunteer committee we cannot do it all without your help. If you would like to get involved in growing this valuable resource, we would love to hear from you. Send us your ideas, web links, examples, requests, or international advertising related materials. Contact us at international@aaasite.org and like our page on Facebook.
