I'm a civil engineer. Now I'm studying MBA (Master of Business Administration). During my MBA, I’m learning many programs and a lot of softwares. These skills are very import to anybody regardless of his/her field, even if a student. Therefore, I saw that Udemy will be the best platform to deliver my skills and knowledge to audience.
