I like the game theory that used to explain competitive strategy. The lectures were interactive and quite challenging, which are important to keep the learner engaged and focused.
Great course with relevant content and really useful strategic overview of business strategy. Enjoyed Prof. Kretschmer's innovative teaching style and the breadth of the syllabus.

It seemed this course was actually produced before the first course in the Specialization because it came across as slightly less quality; what I mean is, it seemed as if the producer was still "learning" how to do this compared with the other, which appeared better prepared. Additionally, I believe the explanations for the material presented in the slides could be better, rather than simply stating what appears on the slides, the professor should go into greater detail to explain them -- not just restate what's clearly shown. I should admit 'm more of a beginner to this subject matter, so maybe I'm biased as such, versus the intermediate learners whom the producer may be focused on. But I do think the courses can definitely be improved upon.

while the task of summing up a lot of information in a minimum sized presentation is always a very difficult task, the structure of the material presented was not optimal. This in turn made it difficult for me personally to actually connect the weekly information presented with the overall meaning and the objective of each module. The "why" and "how" of most modules fit to the meaning we are forming (up to week 5 -the point I am leaving this class) is not evident. Last, some of the questions contained ambiguities that could not be reasonably clarified even going back and reviewing the material of the specific segment. Thank you for the offered class in any case.

Estoy muy agradecida por el hecho de que me otorgaran una beca pero los contenidos son muy básicos y no están estructurados de una manera práctica. Deseo que mi comentario no sea tomado a mal sino como una crítica constructiva. Les agradezco nuevamente la beca pero estaba buscando un curso mas avanzado con contenidos mas actualizados.

very basic and obvious conent very low value addition in terms of understanding competitive dynamics. There should have been a framework to guide the course and not the collection of random topics.
The quiz is designed to test memory rather than understanding. Fewer question with case basded scenarios would be much more beneficial
