TOP REVIEWS FROM INCREASING REAL ESTATE MANAGEMENT PROFITS: HARNESSING DATA ANALYTICS
This course will change you life. I will want to quit, but don't. It is not easy, but it is not supposed to be. Thanks to Duke University, Course and the Professors and all involved.
Simply awesome, it did not only helped me to develop the required skills, but gave me the security to try greater. Astounding method, totally recommended specialization
Really, really, really enjoyed this project. I am sad for it to end but I have learnt so much over this specialisation. Thank you to both instructors.
A really good way to summed it up all, but unfortunately there is not much interaction with teaching assitants, and you barely get your work reviewed.
