Michaela, Bachelor of Commerce majoring in Marketing and Media Studies Victoria University
Tertiary Institution: Victoria University
Qualification: Bachelor of Commerce majoring in Marketing and Media Studies
On the advice of a University Careers Advisor Michaela headed to Otago University to study Law, she was steered away from what she really wanted to study after being told that there were unlikely to be jobs at the end of it. In her penultimate year, Michaela transferred from Otago to complete her final year of study at Victoria, graduating with a Bachelor of Commerce majoring in Marketing and Media Studies. Michaela has worked all the way through her degree including an interesting stint helping out on a political campaign for the 2017 election. At the end of her degree she was offered a place on two graduate programmes and decided to take her offer from EY (Ernst and Young) in their advisory practice where she still currently works. During her 14 months at EY she has been fortunate to have gone on a 6 month international secondment to their Melbourne office to work with their Customer and Insights team from which she has recently returned from.
