TOP REVIEWS FROM SUPPLY CHAIN LOGISTICS
The course was great and I enjoyed doing the assignments. I wouldn't mind having longer videos to watch. Overall it was amazing. Once you start getting good marks in the quiz , you feel keep going on.
Very informative! the assignments are discussed before performing, supportive and responsive community. Very entertaining professor with real life references in the video lectures. Highly recommended
Good course with a mixture of online videos, links to current trends and links to readings. Would be great if course offered optional materials such as textbooks to build depth of experience.
Adequately detailed and informative educational videos. With sufficient links to external resources, study materials & reference information. The tests and exams helped reinforce the study material.
