un excellent cours qui permet de guider les entrepreneurs.
Very comprehensive and easy to follow course to review different forms of business structure in the US.
I t seems that every body think they know the business structures well, but it is not true and they must take similar courses to get useful information.
To be honest , this was one of first online certified classes. I am looking forward to taking more online classes. The experience of this class has being nothing but positive. I thought the course outline and presentation was extremely helpful. The quizzes and test were reasonable.
