Creativity & Entrepreneurship is about the side of entrepreneurship you won’t learn at a business school but, instead, in the music studio.

I really enjoyed this course! The instructor is really passionate and it's contagious. The people complaining seemed to skimmed over the "Level: Introductory" in the table of contents and information. It's exactly what I needed to get the gears turning to improve thought process when it comes to my already successful brick and mortar business. It also led to me taking more courses through Edx. Would recommend this as a good start to any young entrepreneur.

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.

I'm presently enrolled in this course. It's a fantastic course that is succinct, with content that is relevant, and a Professor (and guests) that are very motivating, informative and eager to share their wealth of knowledge. This is not designed to be an extensive 1 year or even 1/2 year course. It is designed to immerse students in the overall skills that creative individuals (entertainment pros and semi-pros) can utilize in their entrepreneurial ventures (whether existing or pending startups). I have many years of experience in both entertainment production as well as entrepreneurship (sometimes unrelated to entertainment) and every video from the course gave me fresh ideas, perspectives, insights into how additional ways to transfer my creative background into business ventures, business strategies, etc. It's also a course designed for students that think on their feet, and that don't necessarily require lots of hand holding....

This was probably the best course I've taken in the past 2 years.

Attractive subject, but poorly done. A few videos on the subject with some interesting people, that's about it, all of it's content. No one leads the discussion, no one monitors it, people have a lot of problems and issues with organization, keep opening topics with same questions and no one to answer. Some people payed for certificate, late comers, only to find out they can not access and do their assignments. You took their money, but won't to anything to make them access all the content and earn the certificate they payed for, not even answer their questions? That's just not fair. As if it is run by a bot. Very disappointing. So different from all the other courses I took, where real enthusiasts, professionals and people care and engage and make it work and make our effort worth. You'll do nothing and learn almost nothing (what short video lectures provide is something you probably already know or can read anywhere and can be put ... Attractive subject, but poorly done.

This guy; or someone employed by him, made an AMA thread on Reddit using new accounts to make his AMA seem like people cared. A poor and immoral method of advertising a product. You'd be much better off going taking a legitimate college course studying under somebody passionate in their career. All positive reviews are likely automated or controlled. Have a good day.

I see that the instructor Mr. Panay knows what he is talking about and the people whom he speaks with in the course are very well versed. However, there is a system problem with the course closing for Week #2. So there needs to be an extension. This is not a difficult course and it can really be fun but having these technical difficulties are causing me to get a little scared.

Poor learning experience as it neglects all other types of creative products. The machine programing is worse as it does not offer a good discussion formate or student assessment. The software fails to work. There are many professional teachers that know the issues that could do a much better job.

The course content is to the point. I'd say that high school students with short attention spans could easily do this course and get good results. A lot of creative people are like that. The instructor is confident, yet humble. His honesty about how he got into the music business was refreshing. He interviewed a wide variety of people and they made some interesting points about what being an entrepreneur is really about. It's an inspiring course that hits all the right notes. The provider is fine - invisible to the senses. That's a good thing I suppose.

I had commenced this course on 16th Sept and completed the first session. I had about 4 hours to complete your 1st assignment , which i did Step 1 and Step 2 ( with great detail and enthusiasm. i misread your Step 3 and thought i was to wait for a review on my submission. I was keen on doing this course and upgrading to a verified certificate course. Sadly i find that since i missed the Step 3 , i will now receive an incomplete course certificate . Very disappointed. I am rating the Provider as low as there seems to be no way of redressing a genuine problem that i have.

This innovative course is a fantastic bridge between emotional intelligence and successful leadership for entrepreneurs and managers. It provides benchmarks and essential ingredients for assembling a successful enterprise, developing committed teams and satisfying real customers. These ingredients will bring you to a place where you are not assessed based on lowest price for your service but on best fulfilment of customers' needs.
