Star Struck with Astro
School of Business Management

Malaysian satellite television provider, Astro partnered with SBM for an intensive 21-week Overseas Internship Programme (OITP). For the first time, two lucky students from SBM’s Diploma in Mass Media Management had the opportunity to work in a building where they were able to catch a glimpse of a celebrity or two! This was an added bonus to the hands-on experience they garnered during this internship.

“What was exciting for me was learning the processes and workflow of different aspects of media production. I was especially attracted by the work done by the audio engineers and designers – being on a live show means that you cannot afford to make any mistakes. It was an incredible experience!” said final-year student Nurul Dinah Danisyah Mazli.

The main highlight? They had the chance to learn from the experts on the production and technical intricacies of Gegar Vaganza – a live Malaysian reality TV singing competition – watched by millions from around the region.
