TOP REVIEWS FROM INTRODUCTION TO CORPORATE FINANCE
Course was good to understand the overall concepts, however few terms like from where exactly the discount rates come from, concept of cost of capital, how the assumptions in values are made etc
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)
Actually it is a great material and amazing instructor, I got a lot of information during the course and even from the references he kindly mentioned. Thanks a lot professor, and thanks coursera.
Great course. A lot of material covered and totally new concepts for me. Some more examples or splitting lectures into more videos, would have seen me absorb even more. Thanks all the same.
