Alumni Feature: Suvesh Arumugam, Social Media Manager at Afrihost
Suvesh started his educational journey with us in April 2016. He completed his Advanced Diploma in Digital Marketing, which is the first qualification of its kind to be offered by an African institution. This programme is done entirely online, over a period of two years and was created for the working professional, just like Suvesh.
This is what he had to say about his time with us:
- How did this programme contribute to your career success?
This programme is directly related to my day-to-day work. I find myself referring back to what I learnt daily. This programme not only covers a lot of specifics but also provides strong general principles governing good content and marketing on digital.
- What did you enjoy the most about this programme?
I love the interactive format. I’m also glad to see that Red & Yellow is embracing more video lectures and streaming — these make it so much easier to engage with the lecturers and the content.
- What was your biggest challenge?
Self-discipline is not my strong point, so I was challenged in that area. I liked how the programme broke the content into “snackable” modules that made it easier to study and manage my time.
- How did the course coordinators and subject-matter experts add value to your experience?
The staff know the content extremely well, and the weekly tutorial chats were very informative. I’ve also stayed in contact with the team and they are always happy to offer their time and advice where they can. They’re very passionate and inspiring.
