I knew I wanted to work in the digital area of business, but also knew I wouldn’t consider myself as a marketer. That’s why the MSc in E-commerce was the perfect choice for me.
I have gotten the chance to also learn about the science of climate change and policy and governance too; things which I would have been apprehensive to study before.
I’m quite young as well. I’m 21 years old. I don’t find age to be an important factor as such, but I do feel the extra year studying with a MA will help me mature.
I have been able to hold onto my journalistic side despite moving towards a career in social media by joining some clubs and societies and writing pieces for DCU’s college newspaper, The College View and Her Campus, DCU.
I was nervous at the beginning as I wasn’t sure whether the content and the course structure would work with remote learning. Thankfully everything was adapted to ensure it was possible to complete the Masters from home without too much struggle.
For me, my Masters course has given me the opportunity to pursue a field adjacent to Finance that I was really interested in, to broaden my learning and understanding.
