Can the students continue their master degree in overseas after graduating from IT&B?
Even though the tuition fee is higher than that of other schools, maybe the most expensive in Medan, the price comes with the most excellent quality. The quality of knowledge that we can obtain by studying here is worth the price which is being payed. Numerous ways to learn are provided by IT&B campus, such as seminars; there are many seminars which are held at IT&B campus, also, there are company tours, interactive class sessions, real-life simulation projects and much more.
Also, what we cannot get from other university or campus is the experiences that are shared by our lecturers. The lecturers are experts in their field of work, and they know how to apply their expertise in their subject area to teaching in a professional way. Therefore, at IT&B Campus, we will not only gain academic knowledge but also practical experience which will help us build our professional skills and our character.David

I have been studying Information Technology at IT&B for 2 years now, and the result is satisfactory. I learned a lot of things I never knew before: I managed to make games like brickbreaker, snake, etc. I was also taught how to create business programs. As for designs, flash, photoshop, illustrator and program-based form designing are also taught here and I learned a lot from studying these programs.
The all-English environment also helped a lot in English language learning. Students are also asked to do a lot of presentations and to practice public speaking. Also, motivatinal seminars are held very often at IT&B, helping us students to gain a positive outlook on life and learning and to become more diligent in our efforts.Kuandi Chandra
