Margaux’s Success Story:

Before starting the program, Margaux was an Account Executive. Since graduating she is now a Digital Marketing Manager


How has the program affected your career path?

The program has helped me solidify my marketing practice by focusing on the core assets & values of each brands I've worked with. It helped me ask the right questions.  I have challenged every brand I have worked with ever since.


What types of jobs do you feel qualified for after graduating?

Any role in marketing. I feel that the program thought me what marketers get to understand after years of experiences... suddenly I was able to have deep conversations with senior marketing and brand managers about their brand and offer appropriate & valuable insights.


What other career success have you had since graduating?

I opened the digital marketing department at YOTEL New York.    


I led the brand to social media and digital best practices by focusing on their brand personality (playful, spirited) and core asset (design). I believe the masters in branding has helped me think beyond the 'usual' / popular practices, and develop tailored digital strategies for the brand.     


My work as included a unique partnership with 'Surprise Industry' to offer guests surprise experiences in NYC, successful redesigned email campaigns that have led to increase in bookings & profits, a new 'social wall' and content blog including a year of content strategy and promotions (Yotelloween, Happy Campaign, Only in New York etc.) and a new brand introduction presentation for all new employees.
