I took the Business with Digital Marketing course during the period of 2023- 2024. Despite having previous experience in this field, the course was very beneficial for me. Firstly, we analyzed real businesses/ cases on the course and worked on developing our practical skills. Secondly, the work experience was a real eye-opener for me, as we had the opportunity to work with a real business in Ireland, which helped me better understand the market here and apply the theory we studied in practice. The course provided an excellent start in a new country for me, and I plan to work here next year and further deepen my knowledge gained in college.
