    Staff Member: Rohan Miller

    Financial Times (UK) quote Dr Rohan Miller in a story about a marketing campaign from the mining industry to improve their image.

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. They work across sectors - in commercial, government and not-for-profit organisations. An increasing number of graduates end up in senior management positions, such as Managing Director, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and Board Director.

The breadth of Marketing provides room for all kinds of people - those who see themselves having more general people and communication skills, are highly entrepreneurial, and those who see themselves as being highly analytical and creative. Marketing is central to any organisation's success and the demand for highly skilled marketers has never been stronger.

We encourage you to find out more about the Discipline's innovative programs, activities and people. And to discover more about what marketers do and what marketing is like at The University of Sydney, we invite you to view the short film produced by the marketing discipline's film unit.
