7- COURSE INBOX IS THE FIRST DIGITAL MARKETING INSTITUTE THAT BELIEVES IN DIGITAL SKILLS FOR EVERYONE WHO WANTS TO FOLLOW THEIR PASSION WITHOUT AGE BOUNDARIES. WHAT ARE YOUR VIEWS ON THIS?
I recently heard about COURSE INBOX and gone through your website. There is a lot of hype in the market today. The way you are providing 4 in one digital marketing course with an affordable price and helping the students to grow their career is something we don’t find these days. Your job portal and student-friendly LMS is another big pointer of yours. You guys are doing an excellent job by giving more focus to practical knowledge besides a degree. Kudos to you! Keep up the superb work.
