The professors did a remarkable job of creating engaging videos that gave us behind the scenes access to some of the France's most interesting companies. They delivered enormous value and truly showcased the potential of online learning as a platform.

Outstanding over the years I have the opportunity to study professional courses in strategy through Wharton and this course is in every way as good, but they further expand on the innovation mindset

Very complete and interesting, describing the full path of the product innovation process. The drawback of such a large cover of the innovation world is that topics are not deeply investigated. I would recommend for new comers in the innovation world and future entrepreneurs
