Studying at BLM Academy was an enjoyable period where I experienced various ways of learning and it removed the gap between theories and the real business environment. Through collaborating with fellow students and mentors, I have also gained team work experience and am now able to handle different challenges using different leadership styles. I found myself a lot more confident when facing new challenges and I was willing to take more initiative to deal with different situations.
It is an academy that takes care of its students and treats its students in a way that makes them feel at home. It is an academy that take its students' suggestions into consideration and that also treats all matters seriously.
I chose to use BLM because they are on the forefront of training services. The academy offers training that addresses audiences in various levels and categories, utilizing flexible delivery and payment methods.
I have just completed my first year of the Masters course and am completely satisfied about my decision to pursue my studies with the Academy of Business Leaders. Our needs and concerns were always taken into consideration and we were always provided with the necessary help. Lectures were all interesting and well prepared. I am pleased with the high level of DCU and the professionalism at the Academy. From one module to the next, I always noticed small changes/improvements, which showed that our feedback was always listened to. I also consider myself lucky to have met and gotten to know other individuals from different walks of life and work environments. The way lectures were organized and the learning environment ensured that we got to know one another well and we have always supported each other all along. I am looking forward to my second and last year of the course. I am positive that it will be another success at BLM. If I could go a year, I would certainly choose the Academy of Business Leaders once again and would highly recommend it to others :)
