My Experience in University of Illinois as part of the MSc in Marketing
As part of the MSc in Marketing there is an exciting opportunity for three students to spend a fully credited semester at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. The students concerned have the opportunity of studying under a distinguished faculty, drawing on a curriculum noted for its fusion of concept and practice, benefiting from one of the largest library collections, and all within the environment of a world-class university. Founded in 1868, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign is the state’s flagship university. In its 2014 rankings, U.S. News & World Report’s’America’s Best Colleges’ rated Illinois as the number 11 public university and its Department of Advertising is widely recognized as being among the most prestigious worldwide.
Sarah Kidd is a current student on the MSc in Marketing Programme here in DCU, who recently came back from his semester abroad in Illinois. Here’s what she thought:
It’s very difficult to sum up my experiences of my semester in Illinois. It has been one of the best experiences I have had to date. It has been hugely rewarding and gratifying. Through the Masters in Marketing I was given an opportunity to experience a whole new culture and college life. The University of Illinois is an amazing college filled with wonderful and professional people, and what I have learnt over there is something that is definitely helping me in my success in my masters and career development. Through this experience I have not only been able to further my education with a very different perspective but I have been able to develop my career. Opportunities like this are very hard to come by and this one is rated on my list and the number one experience I have had and it has all been down to my chose to further my education and pick the Masters in Marketing programme.
Not only are you given the opportunity to study in a very well-known and high calibre University in the United States but you also have the opportunity to visit all the top advertising agencies in the States which are located in Chicago and develop wonderful professional contacts. It has been the best experience of my life and one that no one should pass up!
