About the Course

This course is an introduction to decision-making criteria widely used in the real world and will help you understand the foundational principles of how most organizations make decisions. This course is part of a specialization titled “Foundational Finance for Strategic Decision-Making” and is helpful if you are interested in applying to an MBA degree program or learning the foundations of finance to be more effective in your career. This course is applied and problem-based with assignments that are intentionally introductory and simpler than real-world applications you will confront when making day-to-day financial decisions and in more advanced courses....

Another good course in the specialization.

PROS: The Professor will teach concepts in depth, and will not simply teach you how to apply formulas; Quizzes are nice and challenging; you can wrap up the entire course in 2 days (not recommended).

CONS: The course content is very limited, I was expecting a lot more topics to be covered (like the weighted average cost of capital, and/or free cash flows)

The formulae are a bit confusing and the assignments are tricky without Googling some external concepts. Great course overall.

The videos, as well as the readings, did not seem to correspond with the quizzes at the end of the course. If I did not already have somewhat of an understanding of finance, I would not have been able to get through this. I found myself referring to my own knowledge of the items discussed, rather than anything mentioned within the content of the weeks prior.
