UEH 359 & UEH 360

When managers do everything to get people enrolled, then call those targets names behind their backs. When the business blames its advertising firm for not being able to get more vulnerable prospects. When people get sick because they cannot take the... —  read more

Disembursement or dibursement or reward letter

The majority of our students are ignorant black people that cannot even say the word "disbursement". We also have a lot of white trash students as well that say equally as ignorant things. I had a student tell me that she had just received her reward... —  read more
