Great course to take a truly systemic and out-of-the-box view on one’s strategy. Very useful for both established firms and entrepreneurs. I loved the international experience and exchange on what works in different cultures.

I did my MBA in 2015, where I had a course on strategic foresight and started applying it for preparing innovation reports. I can see how this course enables me to make my future projects even more valuable to my organization.

It was very insightful. It fits the needs of today’s world. It is useful to organisations to be fit for the future. It provides a more detailed methodology than open sources or articles, so we get an implementable tool. This is not theoretical.
