Enjoyed all but Roberto. That may be because I was looking for business concepts and Roberto offered interpersonal skills in a business environment, certainly worth including (may be more a question of motivations than content). Overall there's a lot of great content and something for anyone interested in business skills.

Full of information - lecturers engaging & provide applicable information.

From memory, I particularly enjoyed the interpretation of accounts part (for the content and the clarity of information - I should declare an interest here, I am an accountancy student) and the interpersonal relations part (for the conversational, engaging style the narrator used).

I think that the subjects for each 30 minute lecture have been very well picked and are presented in a logical way. These topics are presented passionately and without unnecessary jargon.

If I were forced to find a fault it would be that some brand examples mentioned are unknown to me in the UK, but you can get the general ideas they are getting across through subsequent elaboration.

I learnt lots from all the sections and I shall be listening again, and recommending to people I know.
