Brianna Della-Bona, Bachelor of Commerce (Public Relations and Marketing)
I mostly enjoyed my course for the mix of practical and theoretical content I was exposed to, working with real-life clients, designing real projects, working in real industries and developing practical skills in media release writing, event planning and networking. This prepared me perfectly for my future career and sparked my love for all things in public relations and marketing.
Choose your Capstone Experience
In your final year, you’ll enhance your employability by undertaking your Capstone Experience. This will provide you with an opportunity to gain practical skills or expand your international knowledge. You’ll select from one of the four options below:

Marco Feelisch, Bachelor of Commerce (International Business), Forbes 30 Under 30 Europe List 2019
Studying international business at Curtin gave me strong intercultural communication skills, the ability to think differently and challenge the status quo, and to always look on the bright side of problems.
My advice to other entrepreneurs would be to take in feedback from a third party, take the time to reflect on your mistakes (that’s how you learn), and align your team on a combined goal and vision. You also need to establish values and follow them across the entire organisation.
