“I chose CTH because it is a well known organisation and welcomed globally. It will make my career easier within the sector in any country. Basically, i live in Bangladesh and i’m studying at Mornington University College. This institute has a lot of facilities which they are providing to the students. All the teachers of this institute guide the students very sincerely. That is why, all the students are gradually increasing their and paying more attention on their CTH Diploma Course. So, i’m very thankful to the Mornington College of Business for providing this course in Sylhet. Now i’m able to get my International Degree by staying in Sylhet”.
