I joined ioAcademy because it is an opportunity to gain knowledge, develop soft skills and apply them in a business environment.

Thanks to ioAcademy I was able to learn and develop many soft skills. I did training exercises to improve my knowledge. I was able to be closer to the work world, and I had the possibility to do a summer internship. The ioTeam has always been very attentive, and they were always available for clarifying my doubts.
