The course was very interesting in terms of the variety in topics. The literature and guidance made me think more in-depth about the many topics. Discussions, both written and live, were interesting due to the variety in background of all the students and differing points of view. It is a pity that the course went so fast, everyone would have loved for the course to be longer and continue to learn. Thank you, Le Cordon Bleu!
