What are students saying?

'The definition of genius is taking the complex and making it simple.” Sodan has a way of transforming a subject that many students find difficult into one that is both enjoyable and straightforward. Generous with his time and advice, he makes himself available to help students think through professional challenges and opportunities. He’s an individual who truly lives by his personal statement of empowering and unleashing the potential in others and I feel privileged to know Sodan.' - September 15, 2016, Laura Evans

'Sodan is a great instructor because he is able to effectively communicate complex business topics to his students. While most professors teach the material straight out of a textbook, Sodan shows you how the material you are learning will actually be applicable in real-life situations by sharing his own experiences. If you have the chance, take either his General Assembly or online course. You won't be disappointed.' - August 28, 2016, Alex Kaveh

'Sodan taught a workshop at General Assembly that I attended. I needed to brush up on some fundamentals I had not done since college and Sodan was a great instructor. He combines real world experience, genuine interest in students, and technical acumen to ensure the material is being absorbed. I would definitely recommend Sodan to anyone looking to understand the fundamentals of business.' - August 29, 2016, Andrew Rising
