In the future, if I decide to restart studying again, I would surely opt for MLI as an institute since for me it was a very remarkable experience doing the courses there with very friendly and supportive Staff. Also, the fact that courses were done online, was very comfortable, especially when having a family.
I would like to thank you all, especially to Mr. Friggieri who was able to support me at any time
