Testimonials of gratuated students
Rachid S. (Antwerpen)
Om mijn winkel te kunnen openen, heb ik eerst mijn diploma van bedrijfsbeheer nodig. Vrienden van mij hebben eerder al deze thuisopleiding bedrijfsbeheer gevolgd. Zij waren allen van de eerste keer geslaagd. Dat geeft mij extra vertrouwen.
Nico K. (Wervik)
Als ik vragen had bij de oefeningen van bedrijfsbeheer, kon ik altijd rekenen op mijn docent. Meestal had ik een dag later al een verhelderend antwoord. Het is fijn om op zo'n manier te kunnen studeren.
Lies O. (Baarle-Nassau, Nederland)
Vooraleer ik kan starten met mij eigen zaak in België moet ik eerst het vestigingsattest van bedrijfsbeheer behalen. Gezien mijn onregelmatige uren lijkt een thuisstudie mij de meest aangewezen manier om mij voor te bereiden op het examen.
Ties L. (Balen)
Deze cursus is de ideale voorbereiding op het examen bij de centrale examencommissie. Na een maand studeren ben ik het examen gaan afleggen en kon ik mijn eigen zaak starten.
