The coursework requires a bit more extensive practicality. The collaboration among the universities, for this MSc, is relatively good.

Best Choice
Anonymous rated 5 out of 5 stars

I just can say was the best choice that I could make , because it is giving me the opportunity to develop myself in so many fields as digital marketing and as in teamwork since as many of the subjects are done in groups, so working in a team is also a skill that I am developing.

I'm proud to be part of my University
