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.


Hannah Booth, International Marketing Executive | Greenfields Ireland

Through this programme, Hannah will spend her first six months in Greenfields Ireland’s headquarters in Belfast, before moving to Dubai for the reminder of the programme to focus on expanding the company’s range of products in the Middle Eastern market.
