TOP REVIEWS FROM SUSTAINABLE BUSINESS ENTERPRISES
Prof. Viswanathan did a great job teaching this class and it was a fantastic follow-up to the first course, Sustainable Innovation in Subsistence Marketplaces.
It was one of the best courses I have ever taken and I learned a lot.
This is a very relevant, well-prepared/presented, and very educative course, I really want to appreciate Prof. Madhu, I will definitely take another course with you. Kind regards.
Really very useful and insightful. I loved how clearly everything was taught.
