Q: Why did you choose Dania Academy, especially Marketing Management?

A: I chose to study Marketing Management at Dania Academy because of the many positive recommendations I received from alumni. I always wanted to work within business development and seeing that this is one of the specializations available at Dania Academy, I decided that this education was the most relevant for me.


Q: What was your favorite subject?

A: I really enjoyed Project Management, because I truly believe that it is a topic one can apply on professional and personal level as well. For me, Project Management was a lot about personal development.


Q: What would you identify as your biggest victory by taking this education?

A: After several semesters of hard work, I managed to prove to myself that anything is possible if you are determined and if you set the right goals. I learned a lot about myself through this programme and that is my biggest victory.


Q: How is life after graduation?

A: I couldn't have wished for more! After I finished my internship I started writing my final thesis when all of a sudden, my former internship supervisor contacted me with a proposal. I ended up landing a job at JP Group A/S in Viborg even before I had my graduation ceremony. I feel very thankful for this opportunity.


Q: Tell us about your experiences and what you do there? Which are your main tasks?

A: I did my internship at Classic Parts Passion – a spare part company in Viborg, where the CEO was the former sales director of JP Group. As I already had experience in the industry and with solving industry-specific tasks and as a result, he thought I would be a good candidate for the job opening at JP Group. Although it is a maternity cover for one of the colleagues in the Marketing department, I still believe that I will learn a lot and that excites me so much!

In terms of tasks, I work with SEO, Social Media Marketing, E-mail Marketing, and attending relevant meetings concerning digitalization and development. As many of the digital marketing tasks are relatively new, I have the opportunity to actively bring my contribution.



Q: What is your advice to future Marketing Management students?

A: First of all, find an internship in an industry you are interested in. In addition, networking is a big factor when looking for jobs post-graduation. And don't be afraid of going after the big jobs when you have finished! The worst thing that can happen is hearing a ''no'' – the best thing that can happen is that you get your dream job.
