Thanks for course offering, it is really useful and build up my knowledge, even English skill or Business plan preparation.

The course is made in series of short video, so it is also helpful to busy guy, much appreciate this one.

It is arranged as a story of succeed-entrepreneur which make it close to reality in our life. I am sure that many other student also feel it motivate our business mind and think about our own business.

Absolutely, We can apply this course to build our business plan, from simple think like product description to much complex like business plan including marketing research, financial projected plan, projected sale volume...many more.

Beside that we also can utilize this one to build an own elevator pitch to persuade any potential investor.

In the last words, I would like to encourage all student who finished this course to spread out this one. It is really useful, benefit to all of us and in many perspective,

Thanks our teachers,

sebelum sholat jumatThis course is made by the University of Pennsylvania and lasts about five weeks. This course is designed to improve the quality of their English in terms of business and entrepreneurship. Each week you will learn many things. This course provides material in the form of explanatory videos, readings, and quizzes. The material presented while I was following this course was quite easy to understand because of the subtitles on the video explanation of the material and also the practice questions included in the video. In addition, this course is also interesting for me because the material presented includes knowledge which for me is about business and entrepreneurship. Therefore, I think this course is one of the recommended courses to improve English vocabulary in business and entrepreneurship and provide additional knowledge related to business and entrepreneurship.

I love the ease of navigating through the Coursera. The weekly modules presented in written and video formats were not heavy and time-consuming. I have a full-time job, so my time for Coursera begins at 10:00 pm. The videos were consistently short, not exceeding 6 minutes in duration, by what I've seen. Also, the video presentations were simple, spot-on, employed minimal graphics, just to get the point across. I also loved the words/terminologies featured in the slides, which makes the participant/student enrich his/her own business vocabulary and retain much information. Thank you, Dr. Nichols and Dr. Redeli for the learnings in this program. God bless.

The course is amazing . Recommend to all those having interest in the field of business and entrepreneurship. Although I have been a business studies student since last 4 years , I knew almost 90% of what was taught but no doubt I have learnt lot of new strategies, concepts , how to persuade investors and attract customers. During the Covid -19 pandemic, I’ve utilised this time learning new things. Thank you coursera

overall the course was very easy to understand and i must say i did learn a lot of new things here, had a lot of firsts too. thankyou for letting us have a free version. the only critisism i have is about the way the assignments are graded. there needs to be a way to make sure that the learners actually do these assignments properly.

One of the best course I have done in 2020 related to entrepreneurship and business along with the English language. Two authors are great and it is reflecting their experience and knowledge. I recommend this course for any person who wants to know and learn about entrepreneurship, business plan, finance and terms used in business.
