  • "Thank you for a fantastic program. I wish I had taken it sooner in my career. As I am currently working on Marketing Plan for my brands, I found it helped me change the way I approached the industry and competitive analyses, providing more meaningful and actionable insights. My agencies commented it was the most thorough background they had received in preparation for their tactical pitches. I love when things I learn in the classroom can be directly and immediately applied in the 'real world'"
