The Integrated Marketing class was very informative. The instructor was a real pro. Visits to digital agencies and marketing firms gave me an insider's view of what it's like to work in the field.
I loved the Digital Photography class. We got to shoot pictures all over New York City. I was able to build my portfolio for college and learned to manipulate my images using Photoshop.
The Finance NYC class was great! We explored Wall Street, visited Federal Hall and the Finance Museum, and learned how to trade stocks. The instructor made the course interesting and entertaining.
