The course provides a good foundation for the most famous strategy concepts. I have appreciated the capstone project which gives you the opportunity to apply the theories learned in the first 3 weeks.
I liked the course a lot, the references were great and gave me great insight about Strategic Management. The lecturer was really good, specially if you compare him to the one in Strategy Formulation.
The instructor's lecture and course syallabus are totally clear and easy to understand for me (who has not enough working experience). Many thanks for the learning journey. I wish i could attend the other courses given by your business school.

Excellent course. The material is easy to understand and you are provided with efficient reading material and videos to support the theories and coursework. This course truly breaks down the definition Strategy and the implementation of such

Very happy with this course! Started out funny and relaxed, and maintained the relaxed edge whilst remaining challenging at the same time. Lots of reading material really challenged me to read more and to give more in the final assignment.

The course covers content that would be very heavy in a traditional study in a simple, practical and fun way. The materials crossing information with real cases are also super rich and help to make the content tangible. I really liked it.

Clear, vital, Charismatic Professor. Enjoyed it very much. I liked it, especially, that it focus how the matter evolved in time, it is important to understand current situation in relation to evolution from past and also why it evolved.

Fantastic course (and much better than the others in this specialisation)! Material is excellently presented and organised in a practical, chronological way. One of the best courses I've taken on Coursera (and I've taken 40+ to date)!

I enjoy the lectures. The professor has a good speaking and teaching style which keeps me interested. Lots of concrete math examples which make it easier to understand. Very good slides which are well formulated and easy to understand

The course is so well designed with apt explanations and examples. The lessons and storytelling by the professor is embedded with so much knowledge and information, yet simpl. Its like a thriller, you just keep asking for what's next.

Robert D. Austin is articulate in conveying the concepts and discussing the ideas and real life cases. I took it as an addition to my Strategic Decision Making course at Southeast Missouri State University. Found this very helpful !!

First course of CBS specialization; was really great.
It's good sometimes to get some keys and to think outside of our everyday box and cases.
I enjoy the course, the teacher, the material and the capstone!
Can't wait to start Course 2

Excellent refreshment of strategic frameworks, enhancing past experiences and future perspectives.
Highly recommended to everyone who is interested in the topic of strategy (business, non-profit, arts, science, sports... anything)
von Bernard D V•
Very good class about Strategic Management. You will learn the history of strategy, you will study the different kind of strategy, the modern era of strategy,...
It's a good start if you want to know more about Strategy in general.

A lot of very interesting information with great real life examples. Very interesting how approach to strategy is changing so rapidly with new forms of business and technology changes. Exciting to observe and be a part of it.

This was my first course with Coursera. I think this if one of the best classes i taken in long time. I have equipped myself with lot of concepts of strategic management. This help me to think clearly in my future assignments.

Very interesting lecture and inspiring intructor. The lectures are designed for every student so they can have a peripheral view on strategic management, learning materials beside main lectures are also very attractive as well

I really appreciated the online course. Lessons and readings are well balanced.
The lecturer is really good, with great communication abilities. He captured my interest and motivated me to know more. Good introductory course.
It's a good class to know about strategic and provide a lot of examples. But as an entrepreneur, it's not very suitable for star-up company. If we can have some successful example as star-ups company strategies maybe better.

Prof. Robert Austin is great in sharing knowledge and seems very resourceful. His teaching style (even over digital media) is very engaging and creates interest to learn more.
Along with that, course materials are also good.

Very well presented and documented course! Excellent introduction to Strategic Management, it's founding concepts, influencers and how it is changing the way we do business. Can't wait to start Strategic formulation course!
There were lots of good case examples that illustrates various strategy approaches. The simplified approach is good for people who does not have business foundation. He is also good presenter and has good lecturing skills.
von Florian D Z•
Great course on strategic management. Prof. Austin has a catching way of presenting important concepts from Mintzberg to Porter to BCG. Especially the examples provide a good insight strategic decisions in the real world.
von Rasmus D J•
I enjoyed this very much. It was a great as a history lesson and a reminder to always question the incessant human "structuralization" of business practices that are, in many cases, better seen as emergent and flux-like.
von Robbie T•
Great introduction to the theory of strategic management. Feel like I learned a lot in a short few weeks. Workload is realistic for those with busy lifestyles. Looking forward to the next course in the specialisation!
The case studies are interesting. The course content is interesting, and the "history" of strategy is a very good point of view to start. The capstone project is a real project, that requires 3-4 hours if done properly.
