What U of M Students Have to Say

 

“My first thought about the session was, "Are they really going to have a real, live, entrepreneur available for this? Wouldn't an entrepreneur be too busy to give us his time?" I was hopeful but doubtful. Roger Patterson didn't disappoint! He was enthusiastic, engaging, and dynamic. He taught us about using web-based services for developing a business. We also had activities to participate in and develop a business idea which we pitched to the class. Thank you, Roger, for making yourself available to us! I highly recommend his workshop. It was an MBA in a day!”

– MBA Student, University of Manitoba


“The workshop helps me in understanding people behavior which help me in dealing with my conflict during my research as well as provides me with better CPM in planning my research and stay focus in my research. Good program and I look forward for the Foundation of Project Management II.”

– Master's Student, Mechanical Engineering, University of Manitoba


“The workshop on Time Management is essential for those who want to succeed in achieving professional goals without neglecting personal life. Easy steps can dramatically improve your performance, minimize procrastination and increase efficiency.”

– PhD Student, University of Manitoba
