An excellent course overall. I really enjoyed the learning experience and look forward to more courses from Wharton. Special thanks to professor Michael Roberts for providing great value in 1 course.

The professor is very patient, he spends a lot of time making sense of the equations and the calculation process, which helps me comprehend the concepts and their application really a lot. Thank you!

The problem sets are a bit too easy, but the lectures are very informative and clarify some not-so-intuitive practices in corporate finance.

Course structure was very good but not for a beginner. I am very fortunate to Coursera and all the course members for all the support.

I am not sure how the answers were evaluated, especially the last IRR question, I used excel and got the answer but it did not accept.

Great contents and easy to follow. But is it me or is the content somewhat incomplete?...It seems that there should be more content

The course is very interesting and informative. However, all quizzes have two or more questions that don't have the right answers.

The course is very informative, however, it would be nice if after each quiz we have an answer sheet explaining the process.

Again an excellent course. An additional level beyond this Introduction on a paid for basis would be highly beneficial.

The course content seems to be only a subset of a standard course, the last week's course ends somewhat unexpectedly.

Not Bad. Short and to the point topics. Some courses have over 3 hours of videos. This is much easier to learn with.

Should include more problems and case studies. Not enough to fully grasp the implications of the proposed analysis.
