Top reviews from Boosting Creativity for Innovation

By PRMar 18th 2020

Phenomenal. The method of teaching and the passion of the professor made me consider doing a longer degree on the science of creativity and innovation. Practical and fascinating.

By RRNov 21st 2017

This is by far the best course out of 4 that I have taken. Very well done. It kept me quite interested until the very end and willing to know and read more about the subjects.
