    In 2018, I was fortunate to receive a full scholarship to study for my Masters in Ireland. I chose to study at Dublin City University, as DCU has a great reputation for engineering professionals. After that, I came back to Vietnam and I was proud that I was recruited by large IT Corporation, which is belonging to the Vietnamese Government. I am able to apply what I have studied in my Masters to do Computer Vision and Natural Language Processing projects which helps serve the Vietnamese community. Therefore it can be said the Master at DCU play an important role in my current job position. I feel so grateful for this.

    At DCU I studied International Business with a minor track in International Affairs, and true to course my experiences at DCU opened up a world of the culture around me. Interactions with my teachers and case studies inspired a global mindset in me especially when it came to marketing and creativity. In DCU, I also wholeheartedly enjoyed the campus culture and extra-curricular student groups. I had some really amazing classes too. Time spent in the student halls, in the DCU Africa Soc meetings, planning student events and hosting our poetry/fashion nights, I learned a lot about myself as a Nigerian expatriate woman. Certain experiences and conversations in DCU equipped me for my job-seeking phase that followed in California, adding in a good look on LinkedIn and helping to make my profile more attractive to employers.

    DCU was an amazing experience for me as even though it is an Irish University, they were very welcoming towards the vast multicultural crowd that attended the university including myself. The university program was designed in a way that it made the students gain knowledge of the most intricate part of their respective profession not only in a local outlook but on a global outlook, which for a person like me coming from India was of a huge benefit. The university campus was well equipped with complete assistance from the professors that helped a lot as it was a different style of education for a person like me from India. The professors who taught us came from the same field and were the top professors from their respective industries. Things that I learnt by studying at DCU is to critically evaluate every aspect of HR and its impact on the business. It developed my personality and broadened my horizons as it was a completely different environment for me. It also made me emotionally more mature and stable as a human being.
