    I first learned about this college from one of my friends, whose son had graduated from here. He told me everything I needed to know about the university's history, learning flexibility, extracurricular activities, and financial costs, among other things. There was no cost of my online application.

    Course Curriculum :

    Multiple fundamental accounting and management segments were included in my course curriculum. In comparison to lengthy standard classroom hours, I had to prepare a lot of assignments and they included a larger part of the programme.

    This college drew my attention because my older brother was a student there. He advised me to go back to school to get my bachelor's degree in business. I hadn't gone to any other universities. Via the website, I had completed an online application process. I had charged no application fee. I had a decent grade point average in 12th grade, which helped me gain entry.

    Course Curriculum :

    This was a versatile course programme taught by knowledgeable instructors. I learned about basic topics of industry and administration, such as business and society, finance, data collection, and accounting, as part of this programme. It also gave me a number of study opportunities. It entailed a variety of teaching approaches aimed at promoting in-depth learning and comprehension.

    Kaplan Business School is a very well reputed university, which has an image of teaching their students with extra focus on each student and their academic record is also very impressive which shows that the teaching quality is really good. Kaplan Business School has a very affordable fee structure for a students with a tight budget. The faculty of the university is very helpful to students and Kaplan Business School has many facilities which can help a student at any time of the day and the help can be of anytime so even if a student is away from their homeland they are still safe and protected.

    Course Curriculum :

    My course has a total of 16 subjects from which I have to study 3 subjects every trimester and each subject has one class per week which makes it alot easier for a student to keep up with every subject and to understand each and every topic in detail by giving it more time also the student gets much time to complete their assignments which doesn't create any extra pressure on the students.

    I got to know about the college through the internet. Their process of getting an offer was quite easy. It took me only around 5 days. Also, their fees were quite reasonable when compared to most of the other colleges around. I have completed a Diploma in business administration in Sri Lanka and KBS offered me exemptions for certain modules here due to that. It was the main reason I choose KBS.

    Course Curriculum :

    There are no such faculties at Kaplan Business School. The lecturers there are super good. The class sizes are smaller when compared to the large scale universities. The class sizes are between 20-30. So the lecturer has more time to focus on one student for longer.
