This course was perfect for those wanting to explore the world of development, broad enough to include all interlinked themes, with sufficient reading materials to spark one's specializing interests.

Very informative and detailed. Prof. Sachs covers all aspects of sustainable development in detail. Though the course was designed in 2013 hence does not cover the latest development to SDGs to date.

It is wonderful course. Whey the Columbia University offer a certificate it will be a Five star course.

Excellent course! 4 stars though, instead of 5, for the lack of minimum certification.
