"EAP is a place where the professors encourage us to achieve our goals and to help us in our development day by day.  Finishing the 8 levels were not easy because they were very challenging for me, but working hard and being persistent is the way you can achieve all your goals.  Thanks to EAP for give me the bases to have success in my future program."  Veronica Gutierrez, Mexico.  An EAP alumni and graduate of the Postgraduate Event Management program
