“My name is Tapon Mahamud Jony. I have completed a Diploma, a Bachelor of Engineering and pursued a Masters’s degree in Business Administration. I’ve completed two diploma courses with Alison to enrich my knowledge of project management and customer service. Both courses’ curriculums were well-organized and the topics were industry standard. Professionally, I am a Broadcast Engineer working in the TV and OTT satellite industry. I was one of the broadcast crew members for the Rio Olympics in 2016 and I will be working at the Japan Olympics this year if everything goes well.”
