Course: Master of CI (Animation) graduate

Student stories from QUT - KILROY

"The Master of Creative Industries gave me the flexibility to design my study around the specific areas of animation that were of most interest to me. I gained significant technical skills and at the same time, I learned how to apply entrepreneurial principles in the context of creative industries.

I also had the opportunity to work with professional artists, musicians, creative writers and designers, which was great professional networking for my future goal of becoming an animator or creative director in multimedia and film."

Hanne Aasen, Norway

Studied at: Queensland University of Technology 
Course: Masters of Business Advanced - Study Abroad

Student stories from QUT - KILROY"Studying an Advanced Masters Degree allowed me to specialize solely in my key interest, marketing. The subjects were both creative and practical, and really opened my eyes to new ways of thinking. The skills I developed helped me land a job as a Brand Manager at the largest consumer goods company in Norway.

Every day I use the knowledge I acquired at QUT to construct marketing strategies and plans for my brands. The help and follow up from my professors was beyond what I could have expected, and far better than other universities I have attended. Being innovative is a big part of marketing, and the real cases we studied helped me to develop analytical and creative skills that will keep me ahead in the competitive marketing industry."
