Study Management, Communication & IT!
David Weber rated 4 out of 5 stars

The course is outstanding with a lot of good lectures and a excellent solcial life with a lot of new found friends, sport activities and more. The only thing which could be improved is the amount of courses in IT. There should be a little bit more about coding and learning multiple programming languages.
