Ben Carron

Where are you from?
Born in Cornwall but my family moved up to Aberdeenshire when I was just a baby, from corner of the island to the other! I have been up in the North-East of Scotland ever since and couldn’t call anywhere else home.

What was your undergraduate degree?
Journalism (BA Hons)

Why did you decide to study an MSc in Digital Marketing?
I was inspired by close friends that studied the similar MSc International Marketing course RGU offers, as well as work in the industry and they paint a fun picture of what marketing is like, that especially intrigues my creative side!

What do you like best about the course so far?
The industry links and working with real organisations for our coursework rather than it being just theoretical.

What’s your favourite app or website, and why?
Discord – It’s such a great communication tool, primarily for gaming purposes but has many uses outside of that market too.

Tell us a random fact about yourself!
I ran the Olympic torch relay in South Korea for the 2018 Winter Olympics and still have the Olympic torch on my shelf at home
