Master of International Business at the International University in Geneva (IUG), Switzerland

"Working with the communications team at MMV allowed me to apply my knowledge from both of my fields of study: communication and marketing. For the first three months I was assigned the task of creating and implementing a social media plan to increase MMV's visibility. It was rewarding to see MMV’s followers/fans on each of the four social media platforms increase by more than 85% during my nine month internship.

Another really interesting project where I played a key role was the “Swiss Malaria Group Photo Contest: Malaria, The BIG Picture”, organized by 16 malaria related organizations in Switzerland. In addition to social media and the photo contest, I supported the communications team with a number of other things such as internal & external surveys and film projects. As a recent graduate, MMV gave me great insight into how the PDP model works and has helped me develop valuable skills. My colleagues at MMV were friendly and the work environment was comfortable and positive. Working with a great group of people at MMV has been a fantastic professional experience."
