This program is the most demanding online training I have had. It is the only training (both online and in class) where the knowledge acquired has formed an imprint in my memory. Now I can discuss boardroom project finance with the executives. It’s truly well structured and I recommend it for all project managers and business executives.
Thank you IMD!
