Great for people that, like me, does not have a management background but maybe end up dealing with this type of position. Good guidelines, simple but complete and using understandable examples.

Course material is fine.

But the instructor isn't the most inspiring. The course feels like the instructor is just reading off the presentations.

Overall, just an average course

Too preliminary!

For such a dynamic topics such as Negotiation, Marketing, Management and Planning - lecturers should have more blood in their veins.

Please, take this into consideration next time. The last couple of courses have almost drained me listening to monotone voices and poor explanations.

Thank you!
