What Tippie students are saying:

“Working with a start-up company based in Melbourne, Australia aimed at entering the U.S. Market by December of this year was an amazing experience.  Their product was an augmented reality mobile app.  Along with my team, I was able to establish relationships with our clients, identify their needs, perform primary and secondary research, and present our findings and recommendations.  It was a consolidated, intense 3 weeks of work and our clients expressed that our results exceeded their expectations.

This experience has taught me to be both patient and persistent when working with those from differing cultures and customs.  Style-flexing to clients doing business at a slightly slower pace and having more meaningful dialogue in our remote meetings to replace the relationship building that would have been done in person pre-COVID, helped to establish trust.  I most enjoyed designing a consumer survey to collect data on target consumer groups and interviewing experts for advice on market entry strategies.  Compiling a 30-page business deck to walk our client through our findings was rewarding.  Influencing a company’s trajectory made it one of the most relevant and applicable courses I’ve taken thus far.”

– Adam S.

 

“The course was the perfect combination of academics and hands-on marketing consultation work. The presentations were given by international business professionals from Australia, Hong Kong, and Singapore to name a few. They discussed traditional business customs in their cultures, specific marketing strategies, and how the business world has been changing from their perspective. I had the opportunity to connect with a guest speakers from Australia that discussed conversion rate optimization. He has offered to mentor me and share international opportunities with me, which was never something I thought I would find over zoom.

I was also given the chance to work as a marketing consultant for an online memorial tribute service. The company is based out of Australia, but has customers from all over the globe. I focused on improving the user experience features and visual accessibility of the website. Throughout the project I was finally able to apply my marketing coursework to real life work. I can see how valuable my coursework is as I now have the firsthand knowledge to apply the concepts I’m learning at Tippie.”
