Why did you decide to study an MSc in Digital Marketing?
As Internet is the largest invention in Human history, it has created a virtual digital world where almost everything exists and from where any person can access any information possible. It has played a vital role in promotion of brands and organization. Through right digital marketing knowledge one can boost the sales, goodwill or increase the audience of any company. So, I joined digital marketing to help the striving business bodies succeed in my country. Besides that, I have always aimed to be a web entrepreneur which was the main reason for me to join MSc in Digital Marketing.

What do you like best about the course so far?
Overall the course in really interesting, the best part about the course is it’s technical and all about creativity.

What’s your favourite app or website, and why?
One of my favourite app and website is eSEWA, www.esewa.com.np. It’s a Nepalese online payment gateway. It has made many lives easier in Nepal as before people had to stay hours in queue to pay their bills for electricity and other infrastructures. Now almost all bills can be paid using eSEWA which saves a lot of time. Besides that, the main reason why I like eSEWA is, its first digital payment gateway in Nepal who introduced digital money transaction. After people getting used to it, country can be developed as electronic payment reduces the chance of corruption.
