About the Course

This course discusses costs and business practices to establish the cost of a product. The concept of time value of money (TVM) is developed to determine the present and future values of a series of cash flows. TVM principles are then applied to personal finances and retirement planning. This is a practical course that uses spreadsheets to better prepare learners in engineering and science for a career in industry. This course can be taken for academic credit as part of CU Boulder’s Master of Engineering in Engineering Management (ME-EM) degree offered on the Coursera platform. The ME-EM is designed to help engineers, scientists, and technical professionals move into leadership and management roles in the engineering and technical sectors. With performance-based admissions and no application process, the ME-EM is ideal for individuals with a broad range of undergraduate education and/or professional experience.

very well put together coarse. A few of the test / quiz questions needed a little more for front thought on them.

Very useful course for Technical Managers

the first half of this course was useful. the second half, devoted to personal finance, should be in a personal finance course. it does not really belong in this course, and was a waste of my time.

granted, some people might find it very useful, but it should be a separate course since the content is not really relevant to the title of this course.

submitting the .csv for the assignment was confusing and really not useful, since the equations and values were all included. basically, there is little learning when someone can just copy and paste.

Course at such is good. However, to submit an excel assignment in csv.file is a total disaster. After 50 attemps and through an external converter I was able to submit. Many students had this problem but apparently nothing is done to resolve this obstacle.
