Deakin University has announced the appointment of MediaCom Melbourne to implement its communications planning and activation across brand, faculties and course-related campaigns.
After a four-way pitch, the content & connections agency has been awarded the University’s account from incumbent M2M.

“Working with Deakin will enable us to deliver innovative communications thinking and execution as well as challenging the sector in how it uses digital, content and activation. We look forward to evolving their media communications strategy and implementation with smart and innovative solutions.”
Trisca Scott-Branagan, executive director of marketing, Deakin University said: “Deakin University is about inclusivity.
