Introduction to Business reviews
Enjoyed this class!
This course was easy.
Good course, good information. As someone with 23 years of professional experience I still learned a few things that I didn't know before!
There is a lot of information, but if read thoroughly, very informative.
My only complaint is with the idea that the World Bank's purpose is only to support the poorer countries. Their stated mission is to help ALL countries with a focus on the poorer ones. That's a small distinction, maybe, but important.
Helpful to learn the basics of business management.
good course but long and words can be tricky
I truly enjoyed this course. Finished it in less than 24 hours.
Great program with lots of great concepts that are very useful for business students all packaged in one course. I would definitely recommend Sophia Learning to other students who are eligible.
Great course! A few typos.
Very informative course and great information on the behind the scenes of how businesses function.
This was a very informational class with much to refresh your knowledge in business. Easy to follow and easy to work through. I enjoyed the journey.
The concepts were easily assimilated once I felt comfortable (early on) with how to think about business as a culture on to its self.
This was not as hard as other courses but it very enjoyable
This was pretty intense, I liked it.
What an amazing course. Challenging but I loved every minute of it!
Some questions in the milestones were written unclearly.
