Within the first semester of my final year I was able to secure a marketing graduate job with Diageo in Dublin. I strongly believe that the range of modules and skills the Business Management course had to offer enhanced my CV and experiences that helped secure the job. The course uses a range of different assessments between assignments, presentations, group work and research projects which allow students to develop a range of experiences and challenges that are great to apply in interviews.
