Thoroughly enjoyed the course. Also, the professor seemed quite knowledgeable. We need more teachers like him!


Very informative with practical insights, thorough brainstorming sessions, really enjoyed listening to Shagata Sir discuss different policies. Would love to attend a follow up course.


The course offered by the academy was very meaningful, concepts like nudges were cleared very effectively, many examples were given for more clarity and understanding.
