Who We Are
The Center for Hispanic Marketing Communication at Florida State University is the only one of its kind in the country – co-founded by Betty Ann and Felipe Korzenny, pioneers in the field of U.S. Hispanic marketing and advertising. The Center holds the distinction as being the first in the nation to focus on the cultural nuances of the Latino sector.
We play a major role in preparing students to address the severe shortage of industry professionals who understand the fundamentals of marketing to a diverse audience as practitioners or scholars.
Today, responding to powerful influences across diverse communities, the Center is devoted to educating students and professionals on consumer behavior across various Latino and multicultural segments. Our world-class faculty and students are conducting trailblazing research and investigations while also serving as a valued and innovative resource for the Latino marketing industry – which is important now, more than ever.
