This is a very awesome course. Although it is a relatively new field for me, I have really learned so much about social impact and investment in general. I really hope to put this to good use.

Very interesting course regarding the social impact on business. A course that any business leaders should take to better understand the impact that social measures have on the business.

This course really delivered on the spectrum of strategies for social impact. Modules 2 and 3 are by far the best and most useful - well produced, with punchy, compelling content. Module 1 felt a bit slow and not overly relevant as I didn't have an organisation to apply the exercises to. Module 4 felt very disconnected from the rest of the course. it was so jarring to go from the concepts under discussion in short videos into multiple, long videos of complex financial terminology which felt mismatched to the level of the prior modules.

Weeks 1-3 were as described and appropriate for the entry level or intermediate learner. Week 4 was a stark departure from the other curriculum and seemed very out of place. It got in the weeds and niche, and generally requires more than a baseline comprehension of investing.

The first three modules were very clear and interesting, however the last module seemed out of place and way too complicated compared to the rest of the course. It was hard to keep up and to understand the link with the previous lectures.

the course was very insightful and informative. However, i couldn't relate to some of the information and examples given to drive the point home.

Very hollow in nature. The other courses are far better.
