Marketing graduate Kyle Brightsman prepared for success

Getting to the next level, reaching goals, and learning new material motivated MATC graduate


Class of 2019 student Kyle Brightsman appears ready for the professional world of marketing. Brightsman has accepted a position at Foxconn where he will be working in the marketing department. Upon graduation he will be leaving behind his role as a brand ambassador for the Milwaukee Bucks and passing the baton on to another MATC student.

Brightsman set his bar this high once he found a major that checked off creativity, learning new material, and having teachers go above and beyond to make
sure the students learn as much hands-on as they could. Aside from completing his studies, Brightsman worked at job coaching, preparing students
to get to where they wanted go in employment and education.

In addition, he was a paid student brand ambassador for the Milwaukee Bucks’ student rush program. Student brand ambassadors represent the team on
campus, among their duties helping get local college students discounted home-game tickets deals to the Milwaukee Bucks games. Students do this by visiting and entering their name, email and phone number to start receiving notifications.

Being a student can be stressful. Brightsman wants all incoming and current MATC students to remember to balance their time. To relieve stress, Brightsman said he reads a book or article about his major. He makes sure nothing stops him from achieving his number one goal.

Brightsman has worked his way up. He will be leaving MATC with a full-time job at the Foxconn technology group, an electronics contract manufacturing
company. For Brightsman, completing his associate’s degree in marketing at MATC was the means to get there – and beyond.
