    I learned about this college from one of my seniors, who went to this college and graduated. I didn't need to do any further analysis because I trusted what he said. After filling out and paying for the $125 application form, I finished the online admissions process.

    Course Curriculum :

    Our course will assist me in developing basic skills in a range of business subjects, including economics, accounting, management, marketing, and finance, with concentrations based on your interests and career goals. The software also provides funding for travel and study outside of class. The programme was very demanding and provided me with a lot of opportunities to learn and develop.
