I joined this course (Certificate Programme in Brand Management & Advertising) hoping for gaining an insight into advertising. Didn't expect much out of it since it was an online program; however, I was proven wrong. The interaction that I've had with my classmates and the faculty's approach to teaching was way better than other online programs. Dr. Falguni & Dr. Anita had a practical 'learning- oriented' methodology and it was an interactive platform. Aditi, our student relations manager was always available to address our challenges. The class comprised of students across various backgrounds and it was an amazing experience. I'd vote for this one. Good job TalentEdge Team & thanks a tonne to MICA.
