TOP REVIEWS FROM RENEWABLE ENERGY AND GREEN BUILDING ENTREPRENEURSHIP
A really good immersion in the green architecture solutions to be best adapted nowadays and the the economic and entrepreneurial field understanding the business factor and the start-up process.
A good course for gaining insights into the fundamentals of the functioning of entrepreneurship, and the relevance of the green energy industry in the corporate world focusing on profits.
The Green economy is receiving a big boost and the knowledge of starting a green economy industry for start ups is explained in easy language and swift manner. Good course indeed.
An interesting topic. Very applicable in 'Third World' countries where problems in energy consumption spawned by the utilization of fossil fuels have persisted for many years now.
I like the easy way of the instructor to approach the taught themes. Very interesting and important theme for the future of our world. The readings are sometimes a lil too long.
Interesting and helpful resources. Learned a lot more for three weeks than I learned in my Entrepreneurship classes in school for two years. I totally recommend it!
The course was very informative. For and Real Estate Development enthusiast like me, it proved the relevance of sustainable building development in economic terms.
Great Course. I would be interested in if there is a continuation of such course going into details for green projects, knowledge and projects done by the lector.
I think this course should contain more information about Green Building materials and how, where we can get it and use it in our residential building projects
Good course some of the reading materials were outdated or expired and the links did not open but overall very informational and thought provoking course.
This course introduced me to an important aspect of our lives and earth which will have a positive impact if all people and governments could embrace it.
Good course with some great content around Green Buildings. Pretty much an even 60/40 split between content based in Green Building and Entrepreneurship.
fantastic course you will learn how to start up a business in renewable energy field. In addition, valuable resource is provided through the course
Dr. Wedding is great. He is very down to earth. More like a peer than a professor. His knowledge is impressive and he easily engages his students.
I love this course, even though I am not in the energy sector of the business, but the concept of the class in total is very very good.
Buen curso, aporta útiles herramientas, así como las guías necesarias para plasmar tus ideas en proyectos congruentes y estructurados.
It is good for a starter in this field. But for one with basic knowledge in this respect the course should be intensified further.
