I needed a means of obtaining a basic management qualification without having to attend classes due to work and family commitments. CMIT website had a good list of available courses. The discounted rate at the time of registration was also a factor. Accessible material and reasonable timeframe for completion of assignments.

I chose to study with CMIT as I was interested in learning Business as it was always a area of interest for me, with the course available to start at anytime and with the easy layout, it was a definite option for me to undergo the course. The staff were very helpful and so lovely to speak to from day one. The course was explained thoroughly to me over the phone when I first inquired, it's exactly what I wanted.

As my occupation requires me to work shift work early mornings and late nights I found it hard to commit to a night class. Online really benefits as I can work from home at any time of the day and at my own pace.
