The five distinguished alumni all told us their extraordinary stories, and they all mentioned that the undeniable importance of internet, social media, and data for current business world. I got some inspiration from their speech, for now and future marketing is a opportunity and a challenge. What should i do ? Tightly grasping the chance and improving myself.
