TOP REVIEWS FROM INTRODUCTION TO CORPORATE FINANCE
This is a nice introductory course but it seems very light on material, especially what you are paying for. Believe it should be more thorough and cover more topics. Michael Roberts was great.
I REALLY LOVED THIS COURSE. IN FACT I ASK THE MANAGEMENT TO PLEASE COME UP WITH MORE ADVANCED COURSES IN THIS AREA.
ALSO, I REALLY LIKED THE WAY THE FACULTY HAS EXPLAINED THE CONCEPT. CHEERS!
I think it is better to have financial accounting course first before starting this course. I just feel the assignments are too less because some course contents are not covered in these questions.
The quizzes have some pretty glaring errors. Please recalculate values, since many questions have incorrect responses (i.e. none of the choices work, some questions don't even have a real solution)
