Albert | Marketing

Placed at: BMT Design and Technology

Albert, who did an IBL placement at BMT Design and Technology.

Swinburne’s focus on the real-world application of degrees was the primary reason I choose to study Marketing here.

The professional placements program (formerly Industry-based-learning IBL) provides invaluable practical experience to apply your academic knowledge and gain a competitive edge when you finish your degree.

Working as a marketing intern at BMT Design and Technology was an immensely rewarding experience. As my role was largely autonomous, I was able to vastly improve my leadership and organisational skills.

This meant I was largely given free rein to apply my academic knowledge in a professional environment, which has given me a great deal of confidence for future endeavours.

During my placement I also learned new technology-based techniques in marketing and design which I will be able to transfer back to my studies.
