Course Reviews

Preetam Rajan

Kuebiko was an important stepping stone in my career. Kuebiko supplemented my knowledge with business analysis concepts and knowledge I could directly use in my job from day one. My technology writing skills improved dramatically. The financial services overview gave me a great insight into operations in investment and retail banking information technology architecture.
