Janina Yotovo "The M.A. in International Studies programme equipped me with the knowledge and the experience necessary to be successful in my career in research and international relations. I work in the CEO’s office at IDA Ireland, the Irish Government’s Foreign Direct Investment Agency. We partner with potential and existing investors to help them establish or expand their operations in Ireland. Based in Dublin, I am responsible for ensuring the smooth running of the CEO’s office and liaising with senior management, the IDA’s Press Office, client companies, governments,
other public sector organisations, news media organizations, and other stakeholders on behalf of the CEO. I previously worked with the Technology Division at IDA, where I was responsible for providing marketing and administrative support to the team, as well as for market research and data analysis."
