Enjoyed this course as part of the Online MBA from UIUC. The concepts are solidly explained with examples and plenty of practice exams that you can re-take unlimited times to test your understanding.

Great course and great professor. I learned exactly what I hoped to learn and more. The professor is very clear in explaining and provides easy to follow examples that drive home the concepts.

Overall a great course with relevant use of material. Suggestion for improvement-the balance scorecard. Knowing how that might be used in organizations would be helpful. Also, a few more case studies in the videos would be good. I would recommend this course to anyone looking to further their knowledge in decision making based accounting.

It is great and helpful, but I think it is kind of needed to be updated such as unavailable links to materials and some errors on the textbook.

Extremely basic if you are doing the high engagement for credit portion of the course. Cases are much more difficult and exam is even harder.
