My First Coursera Course Completion: Grow to Greatness Part 1

Last week I finished my first Coursera course, Grow to Greatness: Smart Growth for Private Business, Part 1.

The course was a combination of:

The course finished with a multiple choice exam. A “passing score” was needed to earn this statement of accomplishment.
