"Some people might ask, why choose MA Program?
I believe learning from others by their experiences and mistakes, is one way to help me grow. However, the main key to help me succeed is to have my own experiences and mistakes. The MA program offers me the opportunity to do both, by a close guidance from an experienced mentor. This program allows me to explore variety of new perspectives from different parts of the company’s structure and from different talented people, which will help to shape my career path in a long run."
