    I've been working with IT people for several years as business process specialist so I've learned on the job. I heard about many things you talked about but I lacked structure and methodology (namely according to project management). Thanks a lot for sharing this MOOC and even better with free exercices. It gives me a good overlook of the topics I should delve into.

    This was an incredible course that covered all the basics for someone that came from a background with little experience in software development to an entry-level position as a business systems analyst. I can't wait to start building on the foundation of all the holes this course was able to fill! Thank you, EDX and Universitat Politècnica de València!!!!
