Student Feedback:

“I have worked in monitoring and Evaluation for over four years. when I took this course, i realized i had an isolated perspective on M&E. The course presented M&E within the context project management and this gave me insights on various aspects of Project and how to Monitor and Evaluate throughout the life cycle of the project. “ Joshua Mwesigwa, Uganda

“I enjoyed the pace and the progress of the course as it clearly guides you through the different stages in the design, monitoring, and evaluation of a project week by week. As a novice in the world of development organizations I also liked the extra material provided as it deepened my understanding by linking theory to case-studies. I am now looking forward to applying my new knowledge in my field: education”. Emanuele Pesoli, Italy
