This program helped me leap into a CEO role for a business in a turn-around situation, and turn around it did!

After my MBA, I started my own IT consulting business which is now close to $1M in less than two years.

My experience thus far has been unbelievably enlightening. I have B.S. in Electronics Engineering and this program in one year has nearly provided as much use as my four years earning my engineering degree.
