With the kick-start of a Bachelor of Business from VU, Beck Reeves now works as Marketing Manager at the happiest place on earth – Walt Disney Company Australia.
I played the drums in an all-girl band when I was younger and really wanted to pursue a career in the music Industry. However, knowing that my interests would likely evolve in the future, I also wanted to ensure I had a more general knowledge base in business as well.
VU’s Bachelor of Business was incredibly diverse. It allowed me to build a very specific set of skills, as well as amplify my knowledge from a broader marketing perspective. Through the support and connections of teaching staff I got my foot in the door at Mushroom Music Publishing for my first job out of university. I will forever have fond memories of the lecturers and tutors at VU who were passionate and caring, making my transition from high school a smooth experience.
After three years at Mushroom, I was fortunate to land my dream job at The Walt Disney Company where I still work today. I currently manage the Star Wars portfolio, launching and building marketing campaigns for new product ranges in Australia.
