The course, till now is extremely interesting to me. I have had the opportunity to learn about different business processes and variations that could occur in these processes.  One of the special thing about the course was that the learning process involved putting forward examples from real life business world. For example we would be asked to discuss global business competition for a company of our choice. This provided an opportunity to introspect deep in to our learning and understanding of the discussed concepts in the class. One of the unexpected topic that I learned was about Opportunity for Improvements (OFIs). From the core of it, the topic seems simple, but when studied deeply, the topic was too waste and offered much for learning. For example looking for opportunity involved assessing the entire business model and looking for strengths and weaknesses. Only then could improvement opportunities be identified.
