For me, this course didn't live up to the stated purpose. The case studies and examples offered are nice as human interest stories, but they don't get too deeply into the relevant ethical and practical issues. I suppose that is part of the point, that we should all have a hand in imagining those circumstances for ourselves and it will be different for everyone. Still, I didn't really get much out of the information in the way that it was presented. Overall, the course was quite repetitive.

Good. Kind of short and some statements made but didn't get conclusions that I can feel satisfied with.

This is an interesting course. However, it could easily be improved by avoiding repetition of the same examples and also by adding more of them, along with concrete data and facts (easy example for instance Tesla and how fast it became one of the world's highest valued car manufacturer and company in general).

Refilwe27 October 2020

Khan3 September 2020

This is a very short course and I don't like it too much. It's ok at some point but It is like a movie trailer.

This was a valuable course. I found it really expanded my knowledge of management consulting. I could reflect on my own career goals, my skill set, knowledge and experience and whether pursuing management consulting would be something worth pursuing.

It was interesting. I enjoyed the way it was packaged. A simple way to get insights into the topic. It might be good to have a follow on that show how these trends are linked with world of work and how they are being harnessed in different disciplines.
