Course: Self-Management and Entrepreneurship
Self-management and freelancing has a very realistic approach to life. I feel no extra theories are being taught that later on, I will not use. Making the tasks more personal such as the current project I'm working on, and implementing them to the class, makes me feel like I can do this with future ones.Student Experience of Camila R.
