TOP REVIEWS FROM OPERATIONS AND SUPPLY CHAIN DECISIONS AND METRICS
I love this course, even for not native speaker it's not to hard, only was not to easy to understand assignment questions and answers. But with google translate help I passed first module! :-)
Very good course. Explanation is really clear, the topic is really on the spot and applicable. I am surprise to found that all the topic is really linked to my current and previous work.
The professor is really calm and composed. His way of teaching is simple and easily understandable. Clears out basic concepts and enables understanding.
Good explanation and presentation but i found it very theoretical and not really relevant to my current role ( Operations Coordinator in a big internet based service company)
