Positives: As this is a combination of programming and strategy management. The course has many specializations to choose such as Data Analytics, IT Strategy Management and Software Services and Development. Hence helpful to learn a variety of units and gain knowledge on them.

Negatives: Some of the units in this course are redundant and theory-based, which won't add any value to the learning.

My advice to future students is: Consider this course if you have experience in Information or Computer science and technology field with appropriate programming knowledge. Also, the advice is to choose the specialization carefully.

Positives: This is designed in such a way that you can choose your specific area of interest like master in data analyst, networking, software Development and IT strategy and management along with the core unit related to information technology so you can study subjects related to the field that you need to work on and also helps in knowing broad knowledge on core information on the field

Negatives: Many projects and assignments in short span of time so that you can't learn very deep about any subject chosen

My advice to future students is: Lots of study/research has to be done by students than expecting it from the course or the lecture .. so that they can excel in the subjects enrolled
