Reviews of AB in Multimedia Arts graduates:

N. P.
◈ Studied AB-Multimedia Arts
◈ At De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde
◈ Graduated 2018

list bulletWhy did I choose Multimedia Arts: But growing up, I had a profound interest and passion for art which later lead me to loving design. I couldn't help but focus on things related to it so I decied, "Why don't I study design? I'd love that"

list bulletAbout my college education: In my course, Multimedia Arts, I have learned a lot, from the history, process, ethics, and understanding in design. It met everything I expected from this course and best of all, it pretty much exceeded my expectations in the near-end of my stay. I noticed that my course is very adaptive and it adapted to the current demands in the design industry, so whatever they teach us in MMA, those are the jobs in demand in the market the moment you graduate. I really appreciate the effort and thought they provide to students to all this, made us very confident in our skills and in our future as designers.

I'd say, in my personal opinion, there were some subjects that were not very useful, such as Filipino, or these minor subjects but other than that the other challenges were from majors and there is nothing to complain about since education is all about challenging the individual, and just as I said, "its just a matter of what every individual would do with themselves in college and in life that would dictate if they would be great individual or not."

Several people shifted to another course I know because courses here are interesting and sometimes people can find their passion once they are in the wrong course :) No shame in shifting.

list bulletMy current job: I'm a freelancer, part-time designer for Alpha Quality Express Inc. And a current designer in Meralco, the jobs they give me are very interesting and are worth learning from.

list bulletHow long did it take to find a job: 1 day - 2 weeks.

I placed 1 day because Meralco wanted me to start working the moment I applied. ;)

list bulletAdvice to people who are thinking of studying this course: Tip to aspiring AB-MMA students , portfolio and your personality is a must. Grades are important, but not as much as those 2 that I mentioned :)
