The topics that were selected were very relevant to the program. The reference materials that were provided (slides, web links, etc.) were very useful. Live sessions where all students were participating in the discussion, and break-out discussions, were good.

I enjoyed the flexibility to take the course throughout the week, as well as the mix of learning via video lecture, learning partner, live professor interaction, and the ability to interact with multiple people from the class. During the lectures, it was very helpful to have the professors not only teach the material, but to incorporate real examples from different corporations. The support of the ExecOnline team in case any issues arose was also very helpful.
The coursework built on each component and was very practical. I found myself pushing away from the lectures to jot down ideas and actions to take often… which to me is the real value of learning.
