This course is amazing: it is my first MOOC, and certainly not my last one.

I have immersed myself within new brands, new businesses, learnt about theories and worldwide ecomnomics experts that I was not aware of, even I have been working in digital marketing for 10 years.

It expanded my horizons: chosen articles are easy to read and understand, videos and interviews allow us to see real entrepreneurs present their products and business models.

I highly recommend it for 20th Century MBA graduates that gave not followed any courses about the new economics in the last 15 years and for those who want to launch a start-up.

Un cours très intéressant et complet,agrémenter de très bons exemples. Etant consultant en management stratégique de l'innovation pour des industriels, je peux désormais me tourner plus facilement vers des entreprises dans le digital. L'approche est complètement différentes, le langage aussi. Le business model est très différent de celui d'entreprise. Nous avons pour habitude de proposer à nos clients industriels des approches holistiques en rupture, nous le ferons également avec nos clients dans le digital car c'est notre singularité.

One of the best organized courses I have taken at Coursera. The videos set the stage for concepts in the course, this is followed by reading material which again comprises of public videos and articles. And the finally the test is not just on videos but also on the reading material and the beauty of how the questions are framed to test if you have really "understood" (not just crammed) the concepts.

This course introduced me to some strategic concepts of the digital world which are quite different from the business strategies I was aware of.

It includes many examples and case studies that exemplify and clarify the concepts.

The videos themselves are short and animated which make a pretty dynamic pace.

I'm quite satisfied with my first coursera course. I found all the topics quite interesting and I enjoyed the summary videos and the selection of reading and video materials. Just have in mind that if you read/watch the extra materials it takes considerably more than the estimated time.

Challenging, informative, relevant... It's a lot of work to follow the course and to pass the assessments but totally worth the effort. As someone who works in a digital role in advertising, un grand merci to the team at Institut Mines-Télécom who put this course together.

Really nice information to know more about the new digital market and its business models.

Enriched a lot my knowledge and, for sure, it'll happen to you too if you take the course and study it.

*The videos are really good - deep information, short and beautiful to watch.

Fantastic course. Insightful, simple, straight-to-point. While the videos are gems, the links in the Reading sections offer invaluable resources I will take time to study in the days ahead. A big thank you to the organizers for putting this course together.

Excellent course for who is working on Digital program transformation. It combines business and technology in a holistic view, but without get deep into any subject. If you are looking for speciaizations, it's not the right courser.
