Sample Answer 1
Learning is a constant process, so we ceaselessly grasp information and assess the same as per our understanding. I believe that taking up courses, whether online or offline, offers an ultimate method to learn a specific subject profoundly. So, one course that I would like to take in the future is digital marketing.
I would like to study this course as my core specialisation and would like to pursue it from NMIMS. This private university is situated in Mumbai but has its campuses in Hyderabad, Bangalore and Indore as well. This course would demand diligent work on my profile. So, if I manage to get an admission, I would have to work harder to excel according to the reputation of the university.
In the course, I want to prioritise consumer behaviour. Considering the digital transformation happening across the world, a diverse range of companies are moving online with focus on social media. Therefore, I would like to study social media and digital marketing and acquire insights so as to apply them to advance my career.
There are plenty of reasons as to why I am inclined toward this course. To begin with, the world of advertisement fascinates me to a great extent. And then, this course cannot be irrelevant as long as humans live with a capitalist mindset.
