The course content appealed to me when I was reading through the Business course in the prospectus. It sounded interesting and mentioned key topics I was hoping to study. The administrators were also helpful, and always quick at sending you information, which was a nice introduction to studying with CMIT. The video in the initial information emails was also a good indicator to what the course would be like - in terms of how you can carry out the course in your own time. I am really enjoying my course. The quizzes are really helpful.
