               Morgan Becker, Marketing + Finance graduate
               Morgan recently graduated from Murdoch with a degree in Marketing and Finance.
               She took advantage of every opportunity that came her way and even studied
               entrepreneurship in California, just south of Silicon Valley, through Murdoch’s exchange
               program.

                  Studying abroad in California was awesome. I had great teachers and learnt a lot about
               the intricacies of getting a start-up business off the ground. One of the best parts was meeting
               incredible like-minded people from all over the world. We worked together to come up with new innovative business
               models, while being mentored every step of the way.

               Following her exchange, Morgan entered the Alpha Innovation Contest where she pitched her idea Mirror Mirror – an
               exclusively fashion related Instagram-style app. Morgan came second overall, winning $5,000.

                  I was really blown away by the calibre of entries, and it made me feel proud to have been placed second! Being
               amongst some crazy technical innovations being pitched - I think my strength was in my business model and having
               a marketing and finance background from my Murdoch degrees helped me in this aspect. I currently have some
               investor interest and I will definitely pursue Mirror Mirror to see where that will take me.
