Three professors taught this course, and they were all great. The presentations were well edited and put together, and they kept it very focused. My only issue is that I'm not entirely sure what I got out of it. A lot of what they discussed seems pretty common sense. That said, I'm a software engineer, and I probably don't understand the practical application of it as well since I have no cause to use it.

Note: This review is the same for the macro-economics course also being done. They are nearly identical except for content. Microeconomics was new to me, but I was very interested in it. Unfortunately, the presentation style of this class just isn't very engaging. It's slide after slide of dry text and the professor reading the slides. He seems very knowledgeable, and in a live class might be fine, but just staring at the powerpoint while someone talks was not working for me. If you're just after a certificate, though, it's terribly easy. Just open the quiz up as you watch the lectures and answer them as you go. It's word-for-word the same thing as in the lecture, and they're pretty much in order.

This was a completely new topic to me, and it wasn't what I expected at all. However, it's turned out to be a surprisingly fun course and really opened my eyes to what operations management is all about. Christian is a great teacher, as well, and the material is engaging and well laid out. I especially enjoyed the extra sessions he had to do examples of what the homework was made up of.

I'm a software engineer with no background in this kind of stuff, but Prof. Bushee really does an excellent job with the material. It's presented cleanly and clearly, and he goes through a ton of examples. The first few lectures I was rolling my eyes at the animated characters, but after a while I grew quite fond of them. They really break up the lectures well, and the professor seems to know just when you would have questions about the material and pops his students in to ask. Great, great class.
