Skills Needed To Start A Career In Marketing

DCI Alumni at Work

I found a full-time job even before the course was over and that was in the middle of the pandemic, thanks to everything I learned in the course and help with the career success team. Now I am the Online Marketing Manager for a sports Startup and I couldn’t be happier with the choice of DCI to change my career and pursue my passions.

Edgar V. Junior Performance Marketing Manager at Fanzone Media GmbH

The DCI is providing me the opportunity to learn from teachers who share their extended knowledge in marketing. It was one of the few institutions that has been able to deal with the COVID-19 situation, by going from offline classes to remote lessons without a drop in quality.

Luigia P. Online Marketing Specialist

DCI changed the way I approach things. The knowledge I have gained in the past year helped me to understand the work of a tech company, connect with co-workers from other departments, but also to get involved with my own ideas.
