I believe that there is no other institution that manages to connect with professors and speakers who are so influential in the industry and who can provide us with so much knowledge. Of course, like any Master's degree, it also depends a lot on how much you are able to take advantage of the professors and classmates, which in the end is the most important thing and what I am thankful for what I take back to my country."
