The course was very well-designed giving an all-round view of the subject. The thread of self-reflection that ran through the course was very well done. It is very important for entrepreneurs to understand themselves, especially in the context of their strengths and weaknesses. Ending the course on a philosophical note of finding those extraordinary moments in our daily lives was so apt and beautiful. Thanks to the professor and the entire course team for sharing their knowledge with us.
