The interior design course at LUMS was a great experience. The course wasn’t too long, and I could manage it easily alongside my job. This course helped me gain the confidence and initial experience I needed to get into the market.

Course: Introduction to Business

The overall experience that I’ve had with this course is just amazing. It’s like a micro MBA that LUMS can have you do in less than two months. It’s a very rigorous course, it’s time-consuming and very hands-on and is a learning experience that everyone should experience at least once in their lives.

Course: Practical Auditing

This course holds a lot of significance because I gained a hands-on, practical understanding of auditing before stepping into the professional world. The instructor created this well-rounded course and allowed us to develop a work ethic that helped me excel in the workplace. This certificate on my resume has opened many doors for me, and I feel like I have got a head-start among my professional counterparts.
