Dublin Business Academy: Learn the Art of Digital Marketing from the World’s Best

To succeed in today's competitive global business environment without digital presence is impossible. But classic business education often approaches digital marketing as a theoretical concept and offers very limited practical insight. The Dublin Business Academy shifts the focus of business education from traditional book learning to practical experience in the real business world. With a clear goal to give aspiring entrepreneurs such as yourself the most powerful marketing tool available today: creativity in the omni-present digital world.


    Top companies such as Google, Facebook, PayPal, eBay, LinkedIn and others have their HQs in Dublin. We’ll visit some of them to offer you a first-hand look at how they do business.

    By the end of the program, you will create a comprehensive digital marketing strategy for a company of your choice.

    Learn how to utilize today's most talked about platforms and individuals - The influencers. You will learn how to combine the two to maximize your ROMI.

    If you want to be the best one day, you should learn from the best now – mentors and guest speakers with a proven track record in the business world.

    Work hard and then have some fun in the city of thousand pubs, breathtaking parks, kind people, and fun stories about literary giants such as James Joyce, Samuel Beckett and Oscar Wilde.
