Up until the day before the Business Management course started I wasn't sure I wanted to do it. I had been working full time in retail for six years and I didn't know if I would benefit from the course. Within the first month I knew I had made the right decision. The coursework was challenging but the teachers all did a great job of explaining what was expected of us in our assignments. The heavy emphasis on computer based work was fantastic and, although the course does involve a lot of assignments, I feel that this has adequately prepared me for my current course in GMIT.
I would recommend the Business Management course to anyone who has an interest in business but isn't sure they want to commit to a full degree course. This course can provide anyone with a great foundation in business education, provided they put the work in.
