All topics covered in this course were explained well and shown how to implement, highly recommended for beginners and individuals who would like to brush up on their accounting knowledge foundations.
The course was very interesting with a lot of real-life scenarios that made it very relatable. I will highly recommend it to anyone trying to find thier way through financial accounting principles.

This course is fantastic!! Prof. Badia gave us a clear and vivid lecture to introduce basic concept of accounting, using an interesting example to show why and how the transections were made and what kind of information we could get in financial statement. IESE also provides high quality reading material. The quizzes are not easy because it is not a "memory" kind of test. To complete the test, learner must really understand how the accounting principle works. It's interesting and worth spending time on it.

I like the way the teacher deliver his lecture by way of giving a recap about the topic discussed during the previous week before resuming for the next lesson.
As a student, we are encourage to engage on a lecture by having some questions popping up and clicking on our respective answer to a question being asked by the teacher during the lecture, and the lecture video only resumes after providing our answer on the question asked. I learned to be more attentive this way.
The quizzes are relevant to the topic

Excellent course. Prof. Badia explains all the key concepts in a very simple way, by means of practical case studies. There are a lot of tests and exercises where you are able to evaluate your understanding step by step. Just as a suggestion, it could be useful to add also some sort of template to be downloaded for filling in the financial statements under analysis. In any case, I really recommend it to anyone who wants to become more familiar with the basic principles of accounting.

Successfully completed a 4 week course on 'Principles of Financial Accounting' on Coursera offered by IESE Business School in 3 days. I was impressed with the program as it required - scoring over 80% on 5 main tests to move forward and access the rest of the material, making a written submission on a case study in which I was expected to analyse financial statements, and also peer reviewing other submissions as well. A thorough course that gave my brain some much needed exercise.

Very well crafted lessons. The videos provide a clear overview image of the ideas, and the reading materials then explain the nitty gritty details of the accounting concepts. I would suggest taking this class as a second accounting course after finishing Upenn's Intro to Accounting class. Upenn's class helped me feel comfortable with the mechanics (math) of the double-entry accounting. This class then helped me to see financial statements from a business executive perspective.

I'm already an accounting student, but I used this to brush up on anything I may have been missing and this was much, much, much easier to understand the way he explained it every topic. I honestly think I learned better than when my actual professors in my school taught me. The only thing I wished for was if there was more practice questions, but other than that I really enjoyed the course and am glad that I took it.

Professor Badia explained the Accounting Principles in a manner easy to grasp even for a rookie. I passed the course with a great grade having no prior experience in the subject. Having completed this course I can broaden my scope during my job searches. Hoping to apply what I've learned here in real-life situations in the workplace. Thanks, Professor Badia and all members of the Coursera Team!

Excellent use of real life example to explain concepts
Contents start simple for real beginners and get progressively more demanding
Nice transaction exercises
English is not the first language of the speaker which may be an advantage for non-natives.
IESE is one of the best business schools in Spain, if not Europe.
A big thanks to IESE and Coursera for this course

I really liked the course - the content was explained in an easy way and satisfactory pace, so the beginners can easily understand the material. Great job done by the teacher! Tests and exams are also a good learning opportunity and practice. Additional excercises would be even more helpful. Thank you!

Excellent! Very good explanations, lots of practical examples. I came to this course because, as founder of a small business, I needed support to understand the financial documents provided by the accountant and submitted for tax purposes. This course addresses and fulfills all my expectations.

The course is excellent! It is well-built and the professor explains all the concepts in a way that they become easily understood. The real life case study is very helpful and it makes the accounting principles coprehensible by someone who has not any knowledge of accounting at all, like me.

Great course, Professor Marc is an excellent teacher. The speed of teaching the information is adequate, it addresses every subject in a clear manner, the tests are challenging enough, I recommend it to anyone who wants to invest in companies and has access to their financial statements.

A quick introduction to Financial Accounting. Prof. Badia explains the concepts very well with relevant examples. Occasionally there will be a (ungraded) short quiz in between the lecture videos to check our understanding, which is also useful for us learners check our progress.

This course really broke down balance sheets, cash flow and income statements using teaching methods that made each topic easy to grasp. I especially liked the idea of teaching by following transaction of a business. You learned by constantly applying and practising.

I signed up for this course with no knowledge of Accounting and now I am comfortable reading balance sheets, income statements, and cash flow statements. The professor was very efficent. I had to slow the video down sometimes because he is so efficient.
This course is amazing for those trying to learn financial accounting; the course almost acquints with basics sufficiently . Nonetheless, it is way more complicated than I had imagined considering the certain terms in business and their functioning
