Everyone’s tweeting about it.
Social media is a huge part of everyday life and an indispensable business tool. Social media sites are widely used by major global brands to keep track of their online presence and public relations.
Curtin’s new teaching and research facility, The Agency, is designed to simulate a contemporary marketing communication consultancy, letting business students experience firsthand how companies use the technology and helping them develop their skills with industry-standard software for social media management, Radian6. The Agency is a command centre with nine large screen monitors displaying a stream of posts from Facebook, Twitter and other social media platforms.
This new facility is another innovative learning space, allowing Curtin students to immerse themselves in their subject matter and gain an in-depth understanding of the working environment of their future occupation, bringing them closer to the careers they want.
