Digital Propositions Lead, Royal Bank of Scotland
"The creativity and analytical thinking that you get from an Arts degree cannot be underestimated. These are the type of skills I use in my own work day-to-day. It has also set me apart from others in the industry, as my undergrad is a little bit different to other people who are going for marketing jobs."
Bachelor of Music
"One of the most important things I got out of my degree was the connections. The reason to complete a top-level course like the Bachelor of Music at Monash is that it is where you will meet truly great student musicians. It is very valuable to be in the same classrooms, talking about music, and exchanging records and tips with the elite of the Melbourne music student community."
