As an MBA/MPP candidate I was fortunate to work with a pair of classmates with varied experiences from mine - they both skewed deeply technical. The mutual value add was immediate, I had the opportunity to develop our go-to market strategy while learning about the technical requirements of our B2B platform.

If you have any interest in early-stage growth companies, this course is a must take.
