The program has helped me gain the international perspective of how business is run and the global challenges that firms face and how they are resolved to gain a competitive advantage over their competitors. Our lecturers took us through ways on how to solve cross-cultural complex problems and apply critical thinking in the areas of finances, marketing, strategy, HR management, and supply chain management in the context of international business. I appreciate the tremendous work that our Course Leader and the entire team of lecturers of this program have done imparting this precious knowledge to me.
