Uchenna Iroha Obuzo, Nigerian, MSE student

“I choose to study with FPT as a university solely concentrated on information technology and provision of IT solutions. The teaching setup is also encouraging as the class size is appropriate which allows for a close-knit relationship between students and tutoring staff.”  

Fadugba Jeremiah, Nigeria, MSE student

“With the current technology trend of Internet of Things (IoT) which is centered mostly on Data, FPT University Master Program offers first-class tutoring and training on Data Analysis. And so it gives me the opportunity to learn from the field experts and get my hands “dirty” on Data Analysis. And certainly one of the most trending and lucrative opportunities for a graduate is working in major software companies.”
