What was your undergraduate degree?
BA (Hons) Management with Marketing

Why did you decide to study an MSc in Digital Marketing?
My first encounter with marketing was at my high school where I have studied business and travel. I have developed a passion for marketing during the high school marketing module and knew that it is a field I would be interested in. After high school it was only natural to go with a business based module and that is where I choose to study Management with Marketing at RGU. I choose this module for the marketing side of it. However, management also seemed like a necessary part in terms of knowledge to pair with marketing. After graduating from RGU with a degree in both Management and Marketing it was an easy choice. As previously mentioned, I have been interested in marketing studies since the days at my high school. That is why I choose to further expand my knowledge in this field. MSc in Digital Marketing was in my personal opinion the best course I could have chosen, as I am certain that there is a bright future in digital marketing based on the digital age we live in and how it further evolves.

What do you like best about the course so far?
I like the practicality of the course. No unnecessary theories and ancient methods. The course is what it should be. Modern and teaching us what the actual methods of digital marketing are in 21st century. Working with live clients is a great bonus and opportunity to test our skills.

What’s your favourite app or website, and why?
I really like Facebook as there are many features which I use. Whether it is messaging, entertainment or different groups to gather information on certain topic/hobby and the communities. My favourite website is Google. I use it every day and getting information has never been easier.

Tell us a random fact about yourself!
I like to be active. I used to play football for ten years, then switched to downhill skateboarding and now I am a fitness enthusiast.
