TOP REVIEWS FROM INTRODUCTION TO CORPORATE FINANCE
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!
Excellent and concise course! I've dealt with IRR and NPV for my job for years and did not fully understand their origins and limitations, and this course helped clearly articulate that for me.
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.
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
