Graduate to Export | My Graduate to Export Journey
Our second cohort of the Graduate to Export programme recently commenced with 16 local companies recruiting graduates to complete a market research project over 18 months.
The Programme allows graduates to gain professional experience within the industry sectors they are passionate about while working towards obtaining a Postgraduate Diploma in International Marketing.
Graduates will spend six months at the company’s premises in Northern Ireland getting to know the company, before relocating overseas for a period of up to 12 months.
We will be following the journey of three graduates to gain an insight into the successes and challenges they will undoubtedly experience in their roles.
