  • Ronny completed this course, spending 1 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be easy.

    A 4 module course where every module has about 8 topic videos of 4 to 8 minutes each. Each topic ends with one ungraded Quiz question. The module ends with a 5 graded assessment quiz questions. The course is missing project work, it is limited to video...

    I strongly recommend this course for anybody interesting in entrepreneurship and innovation. Great examples and demos from the prof. Very practical. The content is bit-sized which make it easier to digest. It also provides you with a lot of practical tools and food for thought. Thank you Dr. Shehabuddeen!
