    It was through internet that I got to know about this college. The academic program and other facilities offered by it were really great. Admission process was totally online and simple. I had to fill an online application form through the college website.No application fee was charged.But I had to paid an enrollment fee of around $200.

    Course Curriculum :

    The course curriculum of this diploma program was just awesome.It provided an introduction to a range of business disciplines prior to choosing the business area.I had studied the big issues affecting all businesses globally, trade barriers, sustainability and the environment, as well as gain the skills to design and evaluate innovative solutions for the future.

    I was planning to continue my studies abroad and I choose this college to do so because through this college’s pathway programs, I could undertake a range of specialized foundation courses or diplomas that helped me complete the first part of my university degree in a supportive and tailored study environment. My GPA was 8, and I had to submit a common application form for an application fee of $75.

    Course Curriculum :

    PEP enabled me to develop the disciplinary knowledge and skills required to start a postgraduate course. Upon completion, I was able to analyze information, evaluate appropriate solutions, and communicate effectively and professionally.

    When I saw a comment from one of the college's alumni on the internet, it piqued my interest, and after reading some other reviews from former students, I decided to apply. The course programme wowed me, and the certification standards were just what I was looking for. It cost me about $75 to apply for this curse online.

    Course Curriculum :

    Two skills in particular were emphasised in the curriculum: computer design and problem-solving. For someone who wishes to work in the software development industry, data structure is a must-have skill. Problem-solving abilities and programming knowledge are prerequisites for careers in Machine Learning and Android development.

    To be honest, I've always wanted to research business, not because I want to start my own business, but because I'm intrigued with how markets work. I filled out and submitted an online application form, along with a $75 application fee. My 8.5 GPA on my bachelor's degree was also a factor in my acceptance.

    Course Curriculum :

    The course took me through every aspect of the company. There's a lot to remember, from how to run a startup and keep it simple at first to dealing with companies with billion-dollar valuations. During the course, some interesting topics were also taught in an easy-to-understand way.
