After ten years working in marketing, Remo Alleman wanted a more fulfilling career, so he made the switch to international, urban and environmental management.
I studied a Master of Marketing at the University of Basel in Switzerland and then moved straight into a career in marketing. After ten years, I was tired of selling products and decided to find work that was more meaningful to me.
Studying at RMIT has taught me openness and given me the confidence to question things and make my own mind up about issues that are important to the world.
The courses I chose to study in my degree have been fantastic, including Intercultural Practices, which really opened my eyes to the differences between my own culture and others; Global Trade and Sustainable Development, which was very challenging but taught me that nothing is what it seems at first glance; and Practical Ethics for International Development, which gives an overview of many ethical approaches and applies knowledge learnt throughout the degree.
My advice to new students is to be open to new experiences and remember that learning is as much about your own personal development as it is about getting great marks.
I love what I do because it has meaning for me, my community and, ultimately, the world.
