On 18 May 2021, our undergraduate and postgraduate students took part in a dedicated Marketing Career Day. Organised by our Careers and Employability Service as part of an ongoing virtual series, the event started off with a lively, interesting discussion named “Digital Marketing - Career & Current Trends” between Nick Day, Lecturer at Oxford College of Marketing, and Raj Achan, Chief Marketing Officer at Accolade Engineering Consultancy. Alongside their senior positions in their respective organisations, both of these incredible marketers are also Marketing Trainers and Senior Ambassadors (respectively) at the Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM).
This panel discussion was followed by a virtual networking session where students from across our different Marketing programmes were given the opportunity to network with employers from several industries, such as Apparel Group, On Mode Fashion and Michael Page to name just a few.
We are grateful to our industry partners who have joined us for the previous 9 webinars during this first virtual series of programme-specific career days, providing our students with the opportunity to hear more about careers in specific sectors. We look forward to continuing our mission of making MDX Dubai students 100% employable through our upcoming final 3 virtual career fairs!
