The main subjects were digital, mobile and social media in marketing, internet and management of m- and e-business. Multidisciplinary and multicultural teams had presentations in the mornings and in the afternoons teams worked in parallel workshops on for example Flash for marketing, 3D-solutions for advertising and digital media in marketing. Some visits to enterprises and to other topic-related destinations were included in the IP, too. For some workshops assignments were given by small and medium-sized enterprises.
We heard many presentations about the subject-related topics, universities and countries. And it was also really interesting to see and hear about projects other students had done. Presentations were interesting, and especially when they included some Irish dancing or interesting questionnaires or competitions. Presentations by staff members from different countries were interesting, and you also got something new through their teaching styles.
But it wasn't just about the work. We spent an awesome afternoon, making in teams fire camps and cooking fish and making pan cakes. Everybody also had the chance to go to a smoke sauna and dip into icy water. For people from for example Greece and Hungary, and of course other European countries, it was a unique way to spend time, and it was also a once in a lifetime thing to happen.
It was wonderful two weeks in an international group with lots of new experiences and making friendships to last forever.
