TOP REVIEWS FROM CORPORATE FINANCE II: FINANCING INVESTMENTS AND MANAGING RISK
Though the module 4 is a tough one, I find it comprensive enough in making a good financial decision particularly in understanding the LBO and the M&A. Such learning is very important.
Risk Management section felt very rushed - would have appreciated a slower pace and more detailed description for such a complicated topic - especially Hedging!
Great course! A lot of good information and useful tools from the world of Finance. The professor is top-class
Great Course the teacher is great and he is very dynamic. I am a CFO and I felt I still learned new things from this course.
