"I found this Strategic Marketing Course to be very informative and content-rich. The podcasts, case studies, and toolkit all provided ample learning experiences to get a taste of effective (and not so effective) marketing practices. I feel more confident in assessing my organization’s value, the client’s needs and perceptions, and how to effectively communicate & deliver this value in a meaningful way." Harrison Shapira, Vice Consul, Life Sciences - UK's International Business Development (DIT)
“This was my first online course and admit that I was a bit anxious about the amount of time needed to complete it. The order in which each of you presented information that complemented one another, made completion of each module fun and stress free. Each module was very well taught and made the concepts easy to understand and follow. The case studies helped to strengthen the concepts and tie the information together. The podcasts were helpful in presenting more examples and the tool kit is great for putting the material into practice.” Basilio Raygoza, SoCalGas
