Student Testimonial

Denton Lindow

I spent some time taking some courses offered at the Georgia Institute of Technology and I just received my certificate for Procurement and Supply Management Leadership. It was a really interesting experience leaning more about the procurement process, along with negotiating strategies and Lean Six Sigma. It was a really enjoyable and interesting learning experience.
