The good news for the media industry in Australia is that media employment is expected to rise by 15,000 new jobs by 2015 and online media is likely to create half of these jobs, according to a report by The Boston Consulting Group.  Here at Metro Screen we are always looking ahead at what is happening in the creative industry in Australia and how our courses can prepare our students to be ready to meet the demands of a dramatically changing industry. Many Metro Screen students who have completed the Diploma of Screen & Media: Multiplatform Production have gone on to great success in the industry.
