Since my time in Sydney, I have seen exponential developments in my career. My experience with the Blue Sox helped me land a sales internship with New England Sports Network. Along with this, my dedication to work in sports abroad also helped me land multiple interviews with professional teams. My internship abroad was a key factor that gave me the opportunity to choose an offer from various professional teams. I will continue to utilize the skills that I learned during my internship throughout my professional career.

Courses

Advertising and Society  

This course introduces students to the linkages between advertising and society. It is premised on the belief that advertising helps shape human attitudes and behaviours, just as the latter two in turn help direct and shape advertising. The emphasis is however firmly on advertising as a shaping agent, how it influences individuals and societies, the dynamic nature of the relationship, and the impacts (both positive and negative) that advertising may have on individuals and societies. It takes a critical and dispassionate view of advertising, rather than a managerial or practitioner's view.
