Different but worth it. The professors are more knowledgeable and experienced plus kind hearted and selfless persons. The university tries to enhance itself for the betterment of the students.

If i have to be honest...
Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

I think that the program is solid and functional, but it does not consider hard skill learning, especially digitals, that are essential nowdays. Most of the teachers are bored and have no passion in their job, but the services are great
