Following the completion of my higher secondary, I wanted to pursue my graduation from Canada. I did a lot of research before applying to the university. My GPA of 3 in my 12th class helped me a lot in getting through the admission process. I had applied to the university through an online application form. And I paid around $60 for the form.
The Bachelor of Business Administration program is aimed at acquiring essential knowledge running in a business or an organization. To do this, my program's curriculum focuses on mastering theoretical concepts and techniques for solving management problems in the context of ethical decision-making and good corporate governance.
I opted for this particular university as it is close to home. My parents attended this university too. Living close to home saves me quite a lot of money. Saving this kind of money by living at home helps me pay tuition. The university came to the school and we could apply on the spot. This way there were no application fees.
I absolutely love it
