The course material and examples are very useful. I really like the CF spreadsheet at the end of week 4 as this is very organized CF model and I can use this as reference to build my own. Thank you!

Having completed my MBA, I wanted a course which can help revisit basics. While I am certainly able to do that, I see lot of points getting answered just by watching the video...Must have course..if you are planning to do an MBA soon or are curious about project evaluation...

Two professors gave very clear instructions in the course. It's much easy for foreign students to understand the course. It's a little bit essential againt the topic decision making because of the major of content is basic of financial management.

Like in the other modules of the course, one should get some details on why questions in the quizzes were answered incorrectly. A hint to which videos / slides cover there relevant information would be helpful.
I think I would be more helpfull if you worked in more detail on the example. Rather than just reading of the slides, it would be much better if we could follow you step by step in calculatons.

The professor should add more into the calculating the present value of growing perpetuity as most of the projects are followed by other project or these go for an extended period of time.

Very interesting, but I have some difficult in understand "the economic way" of doing things. A bit difficult to me, this course, but I think it added a lot of knowledge. Many thanks!

Information was provided in great details, teacher well versed but was lacking a more practical approach. A step by step approach to create the spreadsheet would have been great!

Material is what I was looking for to model decision making in a business/project setting. More practice would have been useful and extra material such as e-books or articles.

Bring further from basic financial reportings
Best in explaining the relationships among them
However, the lecture was almost identical of the slides.

Module 2 quiz was really tricky and I felt the lectures should have provided a more similar example. Could not get the NPV calc in problem 5 no matter what I tried

This course could be made more complex for students willing to try real life scenarios. Otherwise it was amazing and content was explained in a simplest way.

I think that it is one of the most complete courses in the specialization, but at times it is very repetitive from what was learnt in previous courses.

This course provides the basics of evaluating investment projects. It is not detailed and subjects are seen superficially, but I still recommend it.
By Elia M•
I would have liked it more if you walked us through building the Income statement, Cash flow, & Balance sheet for the week 4 lesson.
By Marc B•
The quizzes still have some poor and ambiguous wording, but the instruction is solid and the spreadsheet examples are good.
By Raditya Y P•
This course is beneficial for those who want to understand the decision making and scenarios from a high level perspective.
By Advait D•
More practical examples on excel as an exercise/assignment would help in making understanding of the the concepts easier.
By Mariano C•

Great information and concepts. The media, presentation format and delivery has room for improvement.

Very mich financial accounting, less business logic or statistics, but very useful and challenging
By Alexander A•
Too much terminology and it's hard to follow all of them since there are very few real examples.

Well structured. Would recommend more examples and slower explanations, or even resumes.
