Course reviews

Francesca Valente, Italy

The course helped me a lot in gaining fruitful insights on problem-solving, providing interesting new theoretical perspectives about the field.The multi-dimensional perspective, the opportunity to learn more about crisis and organisational change management have been the added value of the course for my future professional life. Last but not least, the opportunity to discuss with peers constituted the best way to learn, especially if you are, like me, a senior professional.

Natalia Stręk, Poland

At first, I thought that maybe I won't be the best fit for this course because I am not a businessperson, but it turned out that the topic and the different methods can also be adopted to academia. I learned a lot about different tools and approaches on how we can deal with challenges in organizational development. I really liked the fact that the instructor was very open-minded and well prepared for this course.
