It's a much-needed course for me as I am entering into manager level in my organization. This course content is so beautifully organized and easily understandable for a geek like me. I bought the book the author co-wrote and I can vouch anyone can easily read and understand the strategy behind mergers and acquisitions.

Excellent introduction to corporate strategy. The course covered key issues in appropriate detail and at a balanced pace. It was also interesting to use the Synergistic Portfolio Framework - a handy tool. The course can function as a stand alone programme or as a platform for further study. Well done Bart.

Nice, succinct, easy-going, comprehensive course. A good introduction into corporate strategy world. As for acting professionals the course is a bit too easy and facile, but nevertheless interesting and well structured. I guess more advanced sequel course on Corporate Strategy would be highly appreciated.

Just One Word "Un-Parallel".
The Presenter "Bart Vanneste" helped me to get the glimpse of such an important & critical topic "in the simplest possible ways".
Next Question: "How can I practice/apply my learning on more examples". I appreciate if that is made possible by sharing few links.
