MIP graduate opinion

"Studying mastery helped me a lot, since I was able to apply my knowledge. Studying online helped me a lot to apply them at the same time in the organization where I work and that was very productive for me. What most impressed me academically were the topics of linear programming and supply chain, as they made me see more clearly how organizations work, the resources and the interactions they have between them. " Oswaldo Martín
