ERC Institute is not your typical educational partner. It focuses a lot more on practical application and development of the knowledge and skills imputed in the course. I enjoyed the discussions in class here, whereby viewpoints could be exchanged freely without bias or scrutiny. ERCI’s team of experienced and dedicated business lecturers are able to provide wise guidance and enable all the students, especially myself, to see things in much broader perspectives.
