    Master of Marketing and Innovation Management student, Philippines

    "This place is definitely a home away from home"

    I have been working as a marketing professional for over six years in the Philippines. That is why I chose to study Marketing and Innovation Management to enhance my marketing skills and acquire knowledge on an international level. I chose ECU because I know Filipino friends who have studied here, had a great experience, and they feel really at home in this university.

    I have made a lot of friends in this university, who all come from diverse backgrounds, and they bring out a great atmosphere in my learning experience. Most importantly, the lecturers are organised and highly professional; they have constantly guided me in my studies, and some I have considered as mentors in my career.

    The thing I love about Perth is that everything I love is very close to me. The lifestyle is mainly spending your free time outdoors. This place is definitely a home away from home.
