I've enjoyed this course. Prof. Standen gives a very basic but clear overview of the most common financial topics, wished I had this course a couple of years ago it would have made my life way easier.

An excellent well-rounded course and perfect for anyone who would like to gain some insight into financial practices. I would highly recommend this course, "Finance for Non-Financial Professionals."

This is a good course to introduce the novice to financial terms used in common place.
But in my opinion, the instructor could have a gone a bit further, explaining about Markets, Stocks, Bonds etc.
Types of transactions involved.
Maybe its expecting too much, but still, just a suggestion

A very quick overview of finance. Good review of fundamentals but not a lot of depth.

It could be more elaborated. In the 3rd week, there was more equations and hurry to complete the topic, i think. But all in all good. It gives you a brief idea of finance.

A clear, if fairly basic, introduction. The lack of discussion forums makes it a fairly sterile experience.

Volume too low.... need more concrete examples.
Thank you for your effort though. I learned from the course.

Very very simple. Recommended if you need a fast and simple introduction to finance.

It was a bit confusing to understand the topics and try to learn them by heart.

Thanks a lot!
Financing is really large field! But it is a little too cramming for me...

ROE = Net Income ($1,280) / Shareholder's Equity ($3,062) = 42%, not 43%. Your mistake in the assignment causes me to be given 0 points.

Please include exercises for computing the ratios and the valuation methods. In-video questions would have helped more. The quiz does not actually test the understanding of the topic in-depth. There can be some external readings suggested - resources that help us get more understanding on the subjects discussed.

This course is pretty hand-wavy with very less details/examples.

First noticeable thing is that the instructor doesn't convey competence very well. He lacks the practical examples to explain the principles more efficiently. The result for me was that, although he chose not to go deep, the principles weren't as clear, memorable or relevant as I think they could have been.
I did learn a few useful things of course, but it was a disappointment in general.

Very general content. Not as useful as I thought it would be, but maybe I should have read the introduction better:)

Pretty hard to Keep track but the content was good.
I probably need to be a bit more focussed next time.

IT´S A VERY BASIC COURSE. IT´S MISSING ALL ABOUT INTEREST RATES, AND THAT´S WHAT I´M LOOKING FOR.

For me it was boring and too specific. I had a great difficult in understanding it....I quitted before ending.

I didn't think it was possible to dislike finance more after taking a course designed for non-financial professionals. Clearly, I should have known more about finances before taking this class, and perhaps I would have liked it more. However, I left the course feeling more frustrated than ever.
