As a recent undergraduate, with a degree in Media, I felt apprehensive about the uncertain future I was faced with graduating into an unstable job market. This was not just the case for me, but also several of my peers who soon realised upon finishing university that getting a degree is only half the battle. I was lacking the skills required to pursue my ideal career, but I had no idea how or where to acquire them.
By chance I stumbled across the MSc Digital Marketing course offered by RGU, and realised that digital is becoming more integral to all aspects of business. As a video producer, and an avid user of social media, I felt that digital marketing provided the perfect opportunity to promote my own work whilst learning vital information about a relevant topic that is increasingly growing in demand.
Upon further research, I became very interested in the modules on offer and the practical methods of assessment that encouraged project based work. The course seemed like the ideal opportunity, even more so because of the course discount that Robert Gordon University provides to alumni .
Most importantly, this course has provided me with more of a foothold on my future, by highlighting specific work areas that I am interested in, which I had no knowledge of prior to enrolling on this course. All of these areas are incredibly in-demand and make way for highly paid positions in professional environments. If, like me, you are fluent in digital technology and are approaching your graduation with apprehensive feelings about the future I urge you to consider the MSc Digital Marketing course because now I feel empowered to take on the digital world!
