  • Yuko Hagos
    Yuko Hagos United States of America This is a useful course to know what to need to be focused before starting my own business. Actually I own my business myself. It gave me a chance to review what was right and need to be done in future. There are few effective sights which gave me big hints to let me think wide view about future business. Thanks so much for giving me a chance to study entrepreneurship. 2015-11-06 03:11:49

    Umar Ibrahim Nigeria The course helped explain a few things I had a brief understanding of and also introduced a lot more things I hadn't considered before. It has helped me realise my strengths and weaknesses as an entrepreneur and I believe more people should learn from it. 2015-11-03 18:11:50

  • omotayo lawson
    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
