This course is an absolute joke, as well as the staff. Besides the course being completely unstructured and feeling like it was done by a child who scraped the internet with a text spinner software and not a real University professor at all. The videos are, like another reviewer already stated, simply the professors reading the text exactly as it is from the books and nothing else. My biggest issue with the course, though, is the staff. I posted a question on the forum regarding the course material and the response I received from the official "Mentor" was to "google it". When I pointed out that this is what I am taking a Wharton course for, to not have to "google it" and get stuck in some dubious sources, and that this is no way for a Higher Education institution to conduct their education they simply deleted the entire thread and any trace of it. I don't recommend spending your money on this course unless you want to be served a poor excuse for a content and have yourself be ignored when you have questions about it.
Course content is very vague and anecdotal, no real substance behind any of the claims stated in the course. This is definitely not a university level course and more of a self-promotion of the course designers and their affiliated companies.
The content of this course is itself a marketing tool for a platform and a product that I'm not going to mention here. It's more of an infomercial than a course on its own. Be very careful with the tactics presented by this infomercial as they will get you branded as spam really fast and kill any hope of professionalism you would hope to have. Do not recommend.
This course is based on some very erroneous ideas and principles. I dropped it from the first week when the content started to become really bs heavy and thick. Save yourself the time and money, there are better financial courses out there.
Anything containing the buzzwords entrepreneur(ship) and creativity is a cash cow for any university these days and Berkelee isn't going to fall behind on the opportunity to capitalize on it. The course is lacking any real scope and offers no real value. Do not recommend.
This course is the same course given on coursera but with very little additional modules added and a different name, so I'm going to take a page out of Berkelee's own book and copy paste the review I gave it there on to here. As someone who's been working in the music business industry for over 7 years I find the quality of courses coming out of Berkelee shockingly bad. This course is no exception. Content outdated and irrelevant, almost entirely based on personal anecdotes from the professor and nothing of value to a modern day musician. Naturally, I do not recommend!

Course was very interesting, although I think a bit long. It's a great primer for an insight in the way we think about things in general. The instructor was very knowledgeable and clear in explanations, making the content accessible even for a complete beginner to the subject, like myself. I wholeheartedly recommend the course to anyone who is a curious person by nature.
Poor, generalized content, very few actionable steps (if any), the content is actually a mix from other disciplines, very little to do with actual social media marketing and it's trying to promote some low-grade author by asking you to buy their books.
Poor content, extremely biased towards author's own company and affiliate network, less of a course and more of a promotion of course designers own brand.
This course is completely invalid. Course material is very basic and theoretical. There is a great gap between what is taught in the lectures and what it actually takes to apply it. Most importantly where the course theoretical tools can't be applied the instructors simply blame it on the "user" mistake, without providing any way of avoiding these mistakes and asks you to choose another actor or problem, which defeats the purpose of a "problem solving course" and thus making the entire course completely invalid. My two cents on the problem solving thing is that you need specialized knowledge to solve a specialized problem and courses like this, that promise to solve any and all of your problems using a universal technique that only they have are a modern day scam, the likes of guru's and fortune tellers.
Not a really good course in particular. This is more like an introduction to negotiation. The professor strikes me as being extremely inexperienced in real world application. The course content provides lttle value and most of the information is just common sense with some added ramblings to fill the time. Do not recommend.
This course doesn't really provide any kind of solution to the problems individual musicians are facing today. It is far from being a professional education course and more like a show and tell for people not involved in the music industry. Waste of time. Do not recommend.
The course content was somewhat interesting but very broad and general in it's scope, that is if it had any scope at all. Not very useful. If I had a chance I would probably not take it again.
Very basic content of little to no professional value, some of it I would even say misleading. Instructor was kind of distracting from the subject. Look elsewhere. Do not recommend.
