So, it’s been two years

So, it’s been two years since I updated my blog.

First: thank you for reading my blog in the meantime. I hope it has been helpful for those searching for info about the University of the People. 2muchfood was born to describe my experience as a student, my passion for cooking, and numbers.  After living in 3 different cities in 3 different countries, after working for 2 IT companies, after meeting 64 new colleagues and making 7 + 1 new friends, after 52 flights between 18 cities, after staying in 35 hotels, B&Bs, and apartments, after taking 13 online MOOC courses in data analysis and programming, after trying 93 new recipes, I confirm I still love food and numbers. 

In short, I lived in Belfast, then in London, and now I am back in Italy. 

The next posts will touch on our favorite topics –  food trends, recipes, reviews, and analytics – and the words we use daily to describe them.

Here we go.

The Principles of marketing course at Uopeople

I have been working for many years, before starting my studies at Uopeople. While studying, I was running my job and my family. Along the years I tackled many topics: college algebra, psychology, basic accounting or biology.. Knowledge allowed the comparison between past and present; most of all, I put the concepts into practice. Now, it’s like living two lives at once. The bottom-up method is a pillar in our education; we start from real cases, then we develop a solution. Our textbooks triggered our curiosity, particularly the one we used during the Principles of marketing course [Principles of Marketing, flatworld knowledge]. Its authors explained marketing and used examples we have close at hand: IPhone, Coca Cola, Ikea, Walmart, Swarowsky and many others. Definitely: marketing is  Continue reading
