Eoghan O’Keefe – Excel Scholar – MSc Electronic Commerce (2020)
I was fortunate enough to avail of the Excel Scholarship while pursuing my MSc E-Commerce degree. This is awarded to students who achieved a first class honours undergraduate degree at a different university to Dublin City University. This scholarship was of great benefit to me, making it financially viable to pursue a degree that has been extremely beneficial to me. Additionally, it was extremely easy to become eligible for the scholarship, simply requiring participants to sign up using the Excel Scholarship page on the DCU Business school website. It was also extremely satisfying on a personal level to be rewarded for my hard work during my undergraduate degree.
