Student Profiles

Hanne Aasen, Norway

Master of Business Advanced

Studying an Advanced Masters Degree allowed me to specialise 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. Everyday 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.
