TOP REVIEWS FROM SUPPLY CHAIN LOGISTICS
Very informative! the assignments are discussed before performing, supportive and responsive community. Very entertaining professor with real life references in the video lectures. Highly recommended
I thought the instructor did an excellent job of making this clear and interesting. I enjoyed the humor he used at times and that he traveled to actual locations for some videos. I did learn a lot!
It was good, it really made me think about. Assignment are hard and maybe videos could be longer and connected to assignments. It can be harder for someone who doesn't know anything about supply chain
Adequately detailed and informative educational videos. With sufficient links to external resources, study materials & reference information. The tests and exams helped reinforce the study material.
