The support, the level of information and the support materials and its content.



Very very interesting course with one of the most interesting topics Project Management.


The range of course topics. It seemed to cover all the fundamentals. I have been working on the three project for over three years, but I found the comprehensive review of the basics very useful. The freedom to try out different study methods and find which works best for me.The time schedule. It was really good to have a flexible date at when you should hand in your assessment. And also the lecture. All credits to both the text lecture and also the useful link and additional materials. It made it easy to keep up and understand. Difficult to say, as everything was good. And I liked most the chance to further my knowledge on the subject.



I liked the most parts related to the psychological aspect of project management - how to understand human emotions, needs, fears, will, affinity etc. and dealing these things in a right way in order to achieve common good through the project. In a time of modern technology, techniques and assets intended to help, replace, or completely remove people in many complex activities the psychological aspect of project management simply testify that artificial intelligence will never remove human being from this scope.



I liked the flexibility of the learning package and the multitude of different topics that were covered.



I found the course content very thorough and informative. The delivery of each module was prompt, and value for money is unbeatable. I would highly recommend this course to anyone interested in Project Management, and have found it an absolute asset on my CV.



It was a wonderful experience to have been studying online with BOLC and i was so impressed by detailed modules of the programme. I have to confess also that at the end of each module there was kind of case study that is very important as it permitted us to apply to a real situation what we have learnt in the course.
