Where Do Master of Digital Media Alumni Work?
The core differentiator of the Master of Digital Media program and other comparable Masters programs is the emphasis of experiential learning through project courses. In fact, 65% of MDM coursework is project-based.

MDM Student Timeline
The Master of Digital Media program is set up in a way that each student progresses through the program differently. Students graduate from the MDM program with their own unique skill sets and expertise. To show what's possible with the MDM program, here are timelines from 3 previous students that looks at where they started, how they progressed through the program and where they're now.
MDM gave me the support and opportunity to find my place within the digital media industry; it’s more than just a program where you gain knowledge but a place where you gain the confidence to pursue your own ideas and acquire the tools to bring those ideas to life be they technical or industry skills. MDM gave me the foundation to start companies, raise financing, and work with world class clients.
My two years at the MDM have shaped me in more ways than ever imagined. It gave me a reason to step outside my creative comfort zone and surround myself with new ideas, technologies and most importantly with a group of wonderful and immensely talented people.
