One day I was skimming my mailbox. There I read the mail sent by one of the study abroad consultancy. It had many options for countries and courses. I then started to search for digital marketing science programs in different universities in the USA. I went to Flagler College as it was cost-effective than others.
The curriculum requires 10-14 hours per week classes. Real-world work experiences are provided that develop corporate partnerships. It will further help me to enable me to collaborate with a team on a real digital marketing project. Throughout the course I will be studying strategy, executing the program and the ways to present it.
It was near my home, and the college was a good size and the people were extremely nice and comforting. Plus they had the classes I liked. It was a really nice area as well and wasn't in a bad location.
It was a really fun course! It wasn't too difficult but not too challenging. The teacher was really nice, and overall it was a really fun course and it wasn't too challenging. The work was also really nice and hit all the key points.
