Life in DMC was fantastic! I established a strong foundation and it gave me the competitive edge over those who have worked longer. What I gained in my advertising, media and design classes enabled me to understand creative concepts and hence sell better, while the skills in business and research have helped me to constructively critique marcom plans to create unconventional ideas."
