TOP REVIEWS FROM GLOBAL TRENDS FOR BUSINESS AND SOCIETY
It has been an absolute pleasure to learn about the the world economics,
politics and global society's future scenarios based on known data, information and analysis.
It's a very informative course, a great way to see a big picture of world issues. The only thing is that most of the data is from 2015.
Excellent course explained clearly and compellingly. It would benefit from an update, given US foreign policy over the last 4 years, China and Hong Kong, Brexit, and COVID-19.
This was a very insightful, analytical course. I wish Mauro can revisit this post COVID-19 as this will be a huge trend for businesses and societies.
