“ The programme is very comprehensive as it offers modules covering both general business studies and more specific courses pertaining to finance. The different modules help me understand how a business functions, how various business areas are linked, and how finance is a crucial component in any business. In addition, I am better able to apply what I've learnt to the real world, which is invaluable in my current job and enabling me to make more meaningful contributions."
" I've also picked up important soft skills, like how to portray a more professional image, communicate better, and be more confident in presentations. I have no doubt that these will accelerate my career development in the long run."
