The course material is excellent and relevant to the times. The interviews with former students and entrepreneurs provides a real world view of the application of the knowledge disseminated in course.

lecturer is out of view. Mono toned presentation. Slides are not interesting and stay on screen for too long.

It's like listening to a story
