Τhe program was very helpful. I learned many things about business that I didn’t know before. The coaching sessions were also very interesting for me as it made everything more clearly. Thank you so much to help me participate of this program.

The program was great because it was in Alba Vocational School and at a university level. The lessons, the program manager was very caring and had a good following for the group.

I really enjoyed and learned a lot. It was motivating and helpful. I like doing many things but I was not able to realize what I'm going to do for future and what exactly my career is going to be. After this course I found out where I’m going and what the path is.
I also appreciate everybody collaborating and helping this project.
