    • Being a Software Developer in the IT Industry, I had limited exposure to the business world. This course has provided me a boarder vision. TAPMI has structured this course very well. Lecturers are experts in their domains and are dedicated and friendly. They make sure that the classes are interactive. Periodic assessments were organized through quizzes, assignments and end-term tests.
