I really enjoyed this class. Clear presentation and very interesting to me. I would have liked to do a bit more with the excel assignments and data sets. Overall a good introductory course.

I really liked the course content and the application in real life scenario. I would have really appreciated if they could have offered to upgrade to the certificate after the course is complete as well. I didn't know I would be able to finish it, and I thought I could do it in the end. I am still waiting for your reply. I wanted to take the next class, but I don't think I can since I am not able to upgrade to the certificate for this one. I guess I will have to retake the course now!

The course content is basic. I waited more. Some times I felt that the professors were only reading in the video. In this case, is the same to buy a book about retail. I think, teaching Retail has a big market from all the world and you have the opportunity to make the difference. Assortment and Price are topics to go deeper.

I wish the excel window could be larger. I am not that proficient in excel and find I have to download and then switchback and forth. Perhaps an "open in new window "?
