Student success stories

Silhoutte of a person

I first heard about MITT through the Canadian Embassy in China. MITT offered a leadership program I really wanted to join. The course plan was good, the tuition fee was reasonable, and the length of the program was perfect. The program was excellent, and on top of my studies, I actively volunteered at various student life events. The education, coupled with my previous experiences and on-campus volunteering, helped me land a job at MITT right after graduation.
