Lee Ann, a recent graduate, has always had a keen interest in travel, which is why she chose to study international business at Victoria University. She found that combining marketing courses with her BCA complemented this extremely well. Having also completed a BA in Asian Studies, Le Ann was fortunate to gain a scholarship to spend a year studying Chinese language at Fudan University in Shanghai. hoping to improve her fluency and ability to speak Mandarin to open doors. She says she really enjoyed her marketing studies as it allowed her to use her creative side and put her own spin on things: “Both it and international business encourage you to think for yourself to come up with the most relevant marketing or internationalisation strategies.”
She wants to work for companies looking to enter the Chinese market, so she can use all her skills. Her advice for graduates is “Just look for opportunities and take them!”
