    I choose to study here after knowing that, the Amsterdam Business School has positioned itself amongst the best business schools in Europe and I can tell so by the many ambitious young people I met here. After securing a GPA of 7, I had to submit an online application. My application fee was around €100.

    Course Curriculum :

    Accounting program helps in obtaining the information necessary to make important financial decisions at a high level. Company executives will look at several different financial reports to see what is going right for the company, what needs work, and if they are on track to make a profit.

    My elder sister did have Masters's from this university and I was inspired by her she has been very successful in her life so I thought to continue her legacy and take admission to this university. I was required to pay an application fee and applied through the online portal of the college.

    Course Curriculum :

    Through my course, I was taught a lot about the business administration from a very basic to advanced level. I was taught about the business environment and the ways to handle it

    it was through collegedunia that i came to know about this college, and after some researching I applied for this college. It wasn't easy to get admitted here due to the acceptance rate being just 5% . It was due to my merit which helped me secure a spot in this university.

    Course Curriculum :

    It was okay, as this being a theory based subject. I would say my view on politics has changed after i have gained knowledge through this course.
