“It is very insightful to
learn factual theories and practices”

Each module is carefully thought out considering the scope of issues and problems we deal with within organizations. It is very insightful to learn factual theories and practices related to organizational issues and prepare a knowledge bank for myself while looking for solutions in the real world.
