Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This is a great course! The project we had in this course made us think a little. For example, when you order something online - how do you think it gets to your doorstep? Consider all the little steps - like how it was made, who made it, where it was made, how did it get to the warehouse, where is the warehouse, what else is in the warehouse, who sells the product, who sends it to your door, etc. These are all the things that are involved with in a supply chain. It's very interesting!
It's amazing how relatable this course is. Real world examples and the book does a great job in connecting them. The professor I had teaches this course of his own experience which makes it even more relatable.

Advice for students:
A few things that I would tell others to do is read the book. Since I took an online course, I had to make sure to take notes just like I would if I were in a regular classroom setting. There were few video lectures, so I definitely stuck with reading the book as my main source of studying. There are assignments due each week, which are pretty lengthy and time consuming. Those were also a great study source. Although this wasn't required for me to graduate, I did have to take an upper level marketing course, so this was the one I chose and I definitely paid off. I earned an A and also learned a great deal of information about supply chain management.
