Vlad Litvinovcompleted this course, spending 6 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be medium.
Very interactive course packed with tons of useful practical information. The material mostly focuses on South Asia. The dynamic is high but manageable. Overall, it is a great course. Highly recommended to anyone who wants to get the procurement knowledge.
