HND in Business
I enjoy doing this course because there’s a range of modules and it’s inclusive of a lot of different elements. You can take each subject from a different angle, such as focusing on social media marketing within marketing.
HNC in Business
The HNC has provided me with a thorough understanding of business fundamentals, which I have been able to translate into my working life as a Marketing Executive. Having started in this career less than two years ago as an entry level Communications Coordinator, I have already received a promotion and have undertaken increased levels of responsibility.
