Li Lian Lim, completed Post Graduate Program in Digital Marketing, “I ventured into this course, not really knowing how much I would learn, or whether it will be useful to me, or good value for money. However, I remember watching the video of the foundation course and thinking to myself, wow they have pretty good lecturers here. The content was so complete. I know people who have done marketing degrees but they haven’t learned what I learned in Simplilearn. There are so many things that I can do and know how to do now.”
He added, “This course is so practical, yet is grounded by good theory. I feel confident now to build a successful digital marketing strategy for any business that I know well. To me the course is definitely worth it if you put in the effort. A special shout-out to Simplilearn team who always attended to my queries and motivated me to finish the course.”
This is the 6th convocation ceremony hosted by Simplilearn and Purdue University. Since this is a quarterly event, the next one will be held sometime around August or September.
