    Pros

    Great opportunites as a student. Many societies and different classes that can be taken. Really nice campus.

    Cons

    No cons, in general the education is great, and gives you independance of study to develop your potential. If not an independent student it can be a drawback.

    Advice to Management

    Good work, involve more the main department representative on the business school with students. Although the business school is amazing.
