|"My semester was absolutely amazing, in addition to experiencing WA and meeting beautiful people, also achieved a deeper knowledge within Marketing and Business Administration. My professors in Strategic Marketing, Business Negotiation and International Marketing inspired me and motivated to achieve the best possible results and to think outside the box. That I got a Specialised Certificate in Marketing and Business is a big plus for me and something I am very proud of"|
