About business

Student profile Business student Alexander Aloschi-Hopfner

Alexander Aloschi-Hopfner

Bachelor of Commerce (Marketing and Management)

“The opportunity to undertake a placement during my studies has enhanced my knowledge and experience in so many ways. Typically, being in a class room you learn the theory but, in many cases, you don’t know how to apply the knowledge or when. The opportunity to complete a placement whilst studying has allowed me to understand the concepts of work-life-balance and industrial knowledge. Receiving guidance by those who directly work in the industry, I experienced unexpected and unplanned situations; be it complex, basic or hindering stress. Without this placement, I do not think that I would be where I am today with my improvement in business skills, personal qualities and knowledge.”
