Opportunity. Direction. Inspiration.

 

The most engaged college students are the industry's future executives, thought-leaders,
technology innovators, and are changing the way media is consumed.
This is a highly motivated audience, searching for knowledge and opportunity
from those industry leaders who have paved the way.

Welcome to One Day Immersion

Building upon the momentum of the past ten years of producing collegiate lectures and forums, we continue to offer college students unprecedented access to top digital television executives. Through that connection, we provide executives exposure to the next generation of industry leaders, as they develop strategic relationships.

What Do You Think?

  • “I especially appreciate the diversity of not only the panelists in terms of gender, race, age and experience, but also diversity of students. Students from community colleges to Columbia Business School were present, which provided a great opportunity to network and learn”

    Student, Columbia Business School
  • "I make it my duty to attend and participate in events like "One Day Immersion", because it is beneficial to anyone who wants a life after graduating college. This event for me is like the Military's Boot Camp, a training ground that teaches me the Do's and don't's in surviving in such a forever-changing world."

    Jannellee Forbes, Oral Roberts University
  • "Everyone involved said many times how valuable they found the day - students and the panelists alike."

    Industry Executive
  • "I spoke with my student this morning. She was over the moon about the whole thing. She really enjoyed her day and it sounds like she did a lot of networking. Thank you so much for making the opportunity possible."

    Faculty, Lafayette College
