    omotayo lawson Nigeria Its quite interesting and an eye opener for those of us who didn't have prior knowledge of business process in detail. Learning at my own pace was fun as well. Will suggest more simplified examples in explaining some processes especially regarding the business modules. All in all,it was a good learning process for me. 2015-08-09 18:08:17

  • Jean-charles Elirand
    Jean-charles Elirand Haiti The Entrepreneurship is not, verily, a new word, but it is not only an old one. But nowadays it becomes a popular word that attracts almost everyone. I think it's right because the application of this word helps people skip employees to become employers. I congratulate Alison for the idea of creating this online course. I'm convinced that it's going to have positive effect on the population. Once against, congratulation to you all! 2015-05-14 23:05:51
