Student and alumni profiles

Mr Matthew Sherman

Course of study:
Bachelor of Business (Management and Marketing) Bachelor of Information Technology

My La Trobe undergraduate double degree was a great variety of experiences in relation to business operations, marketing and information technology.

The double Bachelor of Information Technology and Business enables students to get an in-depth range of units in both the technology sector and business sector, which is highly desirable to potential employers.

The curriculum was highly focused on practical learning through assessment and labs. It was beneficial to utilise and apply the key skills covered in lecturers and tutorials.

During my studies, I undertook a variety of workshops and seminars that focused on developing key skills to the workplace. By interacting with facilitators and industry professionals, I was able to create networks and an understanding of the skills needed to become career ready.

My experience at La Trobe was welcoming and beneficial, which was a credit to my personal development. I have an open perspective from the variety of culture and outlooks through studying at La Trobe. I believe this is crucial when entering the workforce.

I currently work for La Trobe as a Project Officer, specialising in marketing and event management. My role involves the development of new marketing material, communication strategies and the development and management of small events relevant to my area. I aspire to progress into senior roles that are heavily linked to marketing, management and project management. These positions will allow me utilise my passion for marketing and background in information technology. I also hope to further my studies with a master related to information technology or business at La Trobe in the near future.
