I am really honored to review this course. The course and the Professor was really having a high practical approach. 4th Module was little bit confusion although it was a great time doing the course.

I really like the course however it was too short and generic, and writing a memo as a repetation of the course was not that exhilarating...I haven´t used the discussion forums too much however I was expecting more on building business models...Probably it will be the subject of the next package but still 3 courses were too little as coverage....

I really liked the alagories and interviews from real life experiences and thank you for the effort...

Too much video editing. Repetitive videos in the beginning. Doesn't seem like a course from a reputed university. Theoretically okay, but also applicability to one's own team/function/division is a question mark. Was looking for something more actionable
