Muhammad Zakaria is 19 years old, comes from Pakistan, and found out about Dania Academy Hybrid Degrees online. Although when he first applied he was already studying Chemistry at the University of Agriculture Faisalabad, Muhammad decided he needed a new challenge.

‘’I believe that learning is key for a happy life. I have already studied Human Resources Management and Entrepreneurship in the past and that aroused my interest in Business studies. I truly believe that choosing a Marketing Management degree is the best for me’’, says Muhammad.


An international mindset

Like most Hybrid Degrees students, Muhammad thinks globally and has an international mindset.

‘’I always preferred working in an international environment. As a science student, when we work on projects, we always choose projects that can potentially have an international impact’’, he says.

For Muhammad, the career options are endless. Although he is faced with a decision: science or business, the 19-year old from Pakistan is considering the potential paths a business degree can offer him.

The pandemic and its evolution also had a strong impact on Muhammad’s decision.

''Due to COVID-19 our life balance has been disrupted, but it also made me realize that the pandemic does not only bring challenges, but also opportunities, especially in the form of good quality online studies'', he explains.

I believe that this degree can create many opportunities for me. Many jobs like advertising account executive, digital marketer, market researcher, marketing executive, PPC specialist, and many more are directly related to this degree. It’s exciting to know that there are so many options
