    My college offered courses which peaked my interest and the knowledge I have been lacking in a workspace. Very friendly staff here to help with the students benefits and career. Especially for an international student the location helps them to understand the new country. The first program I chose was Organizational management which was a course not many colleges offered but helped me to understand how to work in an organization. Right now I’m about to graduate my second program soon.

    Course Curriculum :

    I chose business management courses because that peaked my interest. The business faculties in the college are staffs who teach not only how to complete the course but also very helpful for a new international student .

    My cousin is an alumnus of this college and he was the one who recommended it to me and upon researching it myself I was quite impressing by it's diversity and the level of hands-on curriculum being offered here, hence I decided to join it. I applied here through the online portal of the official website of the college by paying somewhere around $100.

    Course Curriculum :

    The program allowed me to learn all key business functions including finance, accounting, human resources, business development and many more. In the program, we took other Business programs that allowed us to seamlessly transition for good. Some of the main courses that I got to study in this program were Business Mathematics, Managerial Accounting, Strategic Business Decisions, Operations Management, and Applied Marketing.

    I was looking for a nice, inexpensive college in the Canada to pursue my education. Then I learned about Lee University through the internet. I submitted online application to the university's official website. I had spent around $95 on the application form. My bachelor's degree had a decent grade, which helped me gain acceptance here.

    Course Curriculum :

    It was a well-balanced and adaptable program. Less lecturing and more communication and conversation was followed by all the professors. I found each and every class to be extremely informative and fascinating. My oral and written comprehension skills greatly developed as a result of this program. Throughout the curriculum, I was required to complete practical experiments and tasks.
