Alumni Spotlight - Business Owners

We know how important it is to support our local businesses, but now more than ever during the current climate. That’s why we want to hear from you, as we launch our 'Alumni Spotlight - Business Owners' feature.

Are you a graduate of DCU running a local business? It could be a café, restaurant, craft shop, hairdressers or online service etc. This is your chance to be our Business of the Month, where your business will feature across DCU Alumni communications and social media platforms for fellow graduates.
