"What I like about this class is that it is very interactive. I originally wanted to take this course online, but I am happy to have chosen this program instead. The hands-on experience is more helpful. It is a great learning experience!"

"The class is extremely interactive, and the setting is very comfortable. Not only is it informative, but the course is very “hands-on”. My instructor, Jeff, is amazing at what he does. I would not want to take this course anywhere other than the Manhattan Institute."
