The Graduate to Export programme for international marketing students was recently launched, with 10 local companies partnering with graduates on a market research project.

The programme allows Northern Ireland companies to enhance their export capability with a graduate assisting them with a market research project. The programme allows recent graduates to gain professional experience in fields they are passionate about, while completing a part-time postgraduate diploma in International Marketing.

We will be following the stories of three of the graduates to get an insight into their experiences.

 

Jenna Todd, International Marketing Executive | The Deluxe Group

Throughout the programme, Jenna will spend her first six months in The Deluxe Group’s headquarters in Portadown before moving to an as yet unconfirmed international market, but as her role involves working on theme park construction, it is sure to be somewhere exotic.
