I have learned a lot of new things and it was a very refreshing course to look back at the things that were studied during my MBA course.I must say that every engineer must have this course.I do look forward to pursue my doctorate under the supervision of the course instructor.It was an exceellent experience.

This course gave a very good introduction on how to establish a project cash flow and use common business valuation metrics to evaluate if a project is financially justifiable.
