After experiencing rapid growth, we are now considered at the forefront of advancing Marketing knowledge through research and teaching, and a leading provider of undergraduate and post graduate Marketing education.
Our teaching and research benefit from strong links with business, professional associations and Government. We draw on the industry experience of our staff as well as the Discipline's Advisory Board, which is made up of some of Australia's leading marketing practitioners.
Graduates in Marketing take up numerous roles in marketing management, advertising, market research and consulting.
