Vivian - 2018

ESSAM location and host changes - so my experience relates directly to the beautiful and historic Uni of Glasgow Dumfries campus in the gorgeous Galloway region.

ESSAM gave me 4 units (2 subjects) for credit towards my MBA in just two weeks - doing it in Brisbane in the part-time mode would have taken much longer.
