This course helped me to learn a lot about Corporate Finance, especially about mergers & acquisitions, LBO and IRR and many more. Mainly it was thanks to the approachable method of the teacher.

The course content is too much. Either reduce the content else increase the weeks duration. The exercises given are very good but lengthy.

Instructor know's his stuff, but there are sooooo many "okay" and "right" he says it after every sentence. It impossible to follow. I expect better from U of I. Really ashamed. I did a word search in the transcripts and in a 6 min video he said right 56 time and okay 20 plus times. That's about every 5 seconds.

Terrible. Instructor introduces new terms out of the blue, doesnt explain how he calculated figures, nor the source of the figures. Dont bother with the honors system as no one is doing it
