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.

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.
