About the Course

When it comes to numbers, there is always more than meets the eye. In operational finance, you will learn how to read the “story” that the balance sheet and income statement tells about the company’s operations. The insights you gain from this “financial story” will then become a tool for short-term decision-making at the top management level relating to current assets, current liabilities and the management of working capital. Finally, by the end of the course you will understand the financial consequences of managerial decisions on operations, marketing, etc....

The course is very useful for beginners or those who graduated and forgot finance and accounting courses. Especially last part (assignment) makes you think more and do a real analysis.

Very clear and well organized course. I liked especially the explanation of the simplified balance sheet when understanding operational ratios.

I recently completed the Finance for Managers course on Coursera, taught by the incredibly talented Professor Miguel Antón from IESE Business School. I can wholeheartedly say that this course has exceeded all of my expectations, and I am thrilled with the outcome. Not only did Professor Antón deliver a wealth of knowledge, but he also managed to make a subject that can be perceived as dry and complex into something engaging, relatable, and even fun!

From the get-go, it was apparent that Professor Antón is an expert in his field and a gifted educator. He effortlessly combined humor and wit with his vast knowledge, making it easy to understand complex financial concepts. His clarity in explaining key terms was truly impressive, allowing students from various backgrounds to easily grasp the material.

One of the most valuable aspects of the course was the down-to-earth and practical examples provided by the professor. These case studies showcased real-world situations, making it easy for students to relate and apply the theories taught in the course. This practical approach has enabled me to directly apply the skills and methodologies learned to my own business, making a tangible impact on its financial management.

The final exam, while certainly challenging, was an excellent culmination of the course material. It pushed me to truly grasp the concepts and techniques taught, solidifying my understanding of the subject matter. The exam not only tested my knowledge but also helped me gain confidence in my ability to apply the newly acquired skills in a professional setting.

Throughout the course, the support from both Professor Antón and the Coursera platform was remarkable. Whenever I had questions or needed assistance, I found the community forums to be an invaluable resource, filled with helpful insights and advice from fellow students and the course team.

I cannot recommend the Finance for Managers course by IESE Business School on Coursera highly enough. It has been an enlightening and enjoyable learning experience that has had a positive impact on both my professional and personal life. Professor Miguel Antón's unique teaching style, coupled with the practical and applicable nature of the course material, has left me feeling confident, knowledgeable, and eager to implement the skills I've gained.

If you're considering taking a finance course, look no further than Finance for Managers by IESE Business School. This course is an investment in yourself that will undoubtedly pay dividends in your personal and professional growth. Don't miss out on the opportunity to learn from the best – Professor Miguel Antón is truly an outstanding educator, and I am grateful for the knowledge and skills I have gained through this course.

Very much enjoyed enrolling in this course for the following reasons as it provided: 1) A very practical and tangible application of the fundamentals of accounting learned in the 1st module of this specialization

2) A structured framework to diagnose financial problems only using common financial statements on companies

3) A quick glimpse on financial forecasting and business modeling
