Life after JCU: Giulia Coppola, Class of 2018

“An idea that is developed and put into action is more important than an idea that exists only as an idea.” Today, this quote has become my guide in the world of work.

My name is Giulia Coppola, and I am a proud John Cabot University graduate – Class of 2018 – with a Bachelor of Arts in Marketing.

I will never stop thanking my family for giving me the opportunity to study at John Cabot University. Since the very first day, August 28, 2015, I realized that JCU was a place where I would not only learn university-level concepts, but also where I would grow personally and professionally.

Learning in an international environment has helped me shape a multicultural mentality and an open-minded personality, which today makes me a better person who is able to adapt and live with different cultures and people. Feeling confident when speaking to an audience, being able to work in a team, and being respectful of deadlines are skills that I have developed at John Cabot University.

Since May 2018, I have been working as Brand and Marketing Project Specialist at YOOX NET-A-PORTER GROUP in Milan. So far, this experience has been extremely interesting and satisfying. I am now in charge of all day-to-day activities related to the development of YOOX branding projects, managing flows and operation, digital production, and photo shoot activities for exclusive fashion capsule collections.

A year after graduation, I look back and realize how proud I am of the progress I made; I see that I reached my goals thanks to the essential tools that John Cabot University provided me in the best three years of my life.
