Back by popular demand, Business Professor Kurt Heisinger will facilitate a lively discussion about this year's Super Bowl advertisements. Participants will work in groups and learn how to identify the target market for each ad and why companies spend more than $5 million to air a 30 second spot. You may even come away with tools that forever change the way you view ads in the future!
