  • "  I had an amazing time taking the CMC 5 day "MBA" course at the Toronto office.  The experience has provided me with a better understanding of business requirements  Providing me with a framework and tools for developing a strategy and giving me the confidence that I will provide more value to my company and clients.  I recommend that companies look at taking this course from all positions within a company including management, marketing and sales.  "

  • "  The course showed me ´the why´ and ´the how´ to implement change to an organization rather than just applying the techniques.  "

  • "  I liked the interaction with the leaders, the free flow of information, exchange of ideas, and the practical examples that were shared.  "

  • "  The course was very thought provoking. Many stories and examples were given to drive home the concepts.  "
