課程概述

This MOOC identifies and explores a number of challenges to the finance professional arising from the ever changing business environment. Increasingly, financial decisions must take account of strategic consequences. The first module, Exploring Strategic Position, Choice and Action helps in doing that – setting a strategic context for planning for, monitoring and controlling projects and activities. An on-going set of challenges is found in the evolution of International Reporting Standards. The second module focuses on some recent changes in Standards, identifying the drivers for changes, and examining evolution in controversial areas such as leasing and goodwill. The third and final module, Corporate Governance, examines issues which are causing people to re-assess the nature, purpose and scope of corporate governance, and challenges to making governance function effectively. Key issues here are the move to include a broader range of stakeholders, the perennial challenge of agency theory issues, shareholder activism, changing Board structures, and challenges to internal control to better manage risk. This MOOC will be right for you if you are interested in engaging with some of the challenges facing finance professionals, even if you are not one yourself. If you are thinking about returning to study this will provide a taster of academic endeavours through reading articles, critiquing ideas, and blending theory with reality....

The course is good and informative in terms of learning.

There is a little problem in getting the assignments verified if there are no reviewers left behind.

Well the objective and the subject matter of the course is good. However the way its structured and certain content are not up to expectations, being the course is offered by a reputed institution.

Specifically, wish to point on the following as constructive feedback:

Some of the links of th reference materials doesn't work and remain unresolved despite the issue being raised in discussion forums

The assignments are interactive with peer review, having said that, the onus of getting the assignment peer reviewed lies with the student, which I would expect should be done by course coordinators, given getting the assignments peer reviewed is one fo the criteria for the completion of the course.

The help center is not really helpful in terms of reachability and response. Probably more avenue to reach out to the help center for technical issues could be available such as simple, hotline, email, etc.

The discussion forums are a great options to debate on the subject matters, however seems currently there is no option to reach out to a member personally to clarify on comments if any. Probably an area for development.

Not willing to provide a high rating given my expectations were high being enrolling for a course from a reputable institution.

There are serious issues in the IT infrastructure for this Online Course. Coursera needs to upgrade their IT infrastructure for it to be real time. You may go through the threads in Help for more information and issues posted by other users.

Apart from this, it is extremely difficult to communicate with someone in Coursera regarding anything and in any form, i.e email, live chat, etc.
