My experience in iX LaunchPad was one of a kind. So thrilling and filled with such positive people is definitely everybody needs to try. I didn't know a lot about finance before i joined. I wanted to get a glimpse of what it was going to be like for me next year since I plan on taking a commerce stream.

My overall experience was amazing. I learnt so much in a short given time. The instructors were extremely helpful and this course provided me with a stepping stone in my knowledge to getting a job in the media industry. The course was informative and engaging and i would recommend this to anyone who is interested.
