TOP REVIEWS FROM GLOBAL TRENDS FOR BUSINESS AND SOCIETY
Very informative course on the importance and the influence of various countries on the Global Trends and Economy. Highly recommended for people seeking skills on international market trends.
More depth in content is expected. It has a very good overview. Maybe we can split it into two level with advanced business context topics in 2nd level.
Absolutely fascinating. Provided me with the fundamentals of assessing global patterns and trends to make informed hypotheses on the direction the world is taking.
The mobile version did not line up weekly with the desktop version. The course has tons of valuable information! I would have liked to have more additional reading suggestions from the instructor.
