Excellent Course. Understanding human behavior is one of the most difficult challenges in an organization. This course describes the challenges well and offers approaches to tackling those challenges.
A fantastic, thought provoking course. Gave us a lot of things to reflect on and be mindful of in different situations in the organization. Thank you Prof Cappelli and Prof Useem. Grateful to you.

This is an essential component for any MBA. You will be managing people and they are the second most costly asset. I would like to see a deeper dive in phycology and a broader view of compensation. With it being consolidated, it doesn't give you quite enough. I will be taking another deeper dive in another course online to full-fill this need.

I personally found this course effective as a student seeking to gain an insight into the field of Human Resource Management as the professors have been able to cover all the necessary topics through interesting ways by the use of videos and examples. This has indeed made my learning experience a more meaningful and fruitful one!!

Both the professors were amazing in their delivery of content! The content was brief but very relevant to the course, the examples and case studies discussed were also really good! One of the best online courses I've taken till date. Although I'd wish there was some more content/assignment in the form of case studies etc.

This course provides a great insight into the basics of efficient management of Human capital - as humans/people are the only factor of production with legal rights so management of human resources becomes a vital issue along with social norms attached to it.
All in all, a very good course to build a foundation.

Amazing course regarding how to lead people, developing traits, and how our decision-making process has an impact on those we lead. The best topic that I liked was regarding the training - in companion with the marines - of Wharton students to make decisions with little information.

I have the mind of an architect, so managing people has always been a challenge for me. This module armed me with concepts that are based on science, yet can be applied to human capital. I know have the tools to better balance the art and the science and the head and the heart.

It was a very interesting course. Much of what you learn is about fix capital but organizations are constitute of people whose actions are not as rational as we sometimes thought. Understand the ways in which you can lead organizational change is a key element.

It was a well structured course. The professors and their explanations plus the materials used to explain the theory were simple yet powerful. I wished some of the slides were more clear, it was hard to see specially the charts.I enjoyed it thoroughly.

Incredibly well paced course with very engaging professors and material. I was very impressed with the clarity of discussed topics and frequency at which new material was presented - without becoming overwhelming. Taking this course was a pleasure.
