Ashish Jain, Graduate Diploma in Business

"Studying overseas really improves your skills to adapt to a whole different world with other people and a whole different way of living.  It is a chance to step out of the culture and values of home and experience something completely new.  Overall it enhances your people management skills, your flexibility and makes you a stronger person.

In this context, EIT gives you the opportunity to study in a multicultural environment.

I chose to study at EIT because of its reputation and the faculty is composed of dynamic, qualified and pleasant tutors so as to make you feel good and relaxed.  I hope to become an expert in the field of business, but to do this you need a good theoretical background and up to date knowledge.  You also  need practical experience , which you can gain through real life examples in the field you are studying in.

My advice is to learn every year you have worked, move on to the next level, never sit still and make sure you keep challenging yourself."
