My TU Dublin degree is internationally recognized and I was given the opportunity to work in both the domestic and international markets during my time at TU Dublin.  My degree has already opened many doors for my career within the Hospitality Industry and allowed me to reach a senior level within hotels. I worked both in operations and sales and my latest achievement was reaching to senior sales manager at The Westin Dublin.
