"The experience provided by the AEF can be summarized by a single word: outstanding! The advertising world is quickly changing. Professors wishing to stay abreast of the latest developments and to get some "real world" experience can learn from field experience, interactions with executives in selected firms, and an excellent orientation program focusing on providing an overview of the industry. In short, I highly recommend the AEF's VPP program and hope that it continues in perpetuity to provide relevant experiences to aspiring professors." --Prof. Ilan Alon
