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!

Really enjoyed this class. The course materials were laid out in a way that really made sense, I appreciated the weekly slides. I learned a lot and wish I could delve more deeply into this topic.

I don't have a finance background so this course has opened my eyes to the world of corporate finance.

I like how well-thought-out Prof Michael is in designing the course in which all topics flow nicely from week 1 to week 4 and how each concept introduced is interdependent to create a solid financial analysis that people can use to determine the valuation of a project or an investment. However, I'd have rated this course 5 stars, had there been more quizzes, hands-on assignments or final exams that require students to use tools and concepts learned to forecast cash flows and figure out the valuation by themselves. I'm a hands-on learner and although I got 100% from this course I'm not certain I actually understood everything and that I could go out in the real world and start doing some mini financial analysis.

Overall, it's a good introductory course and Prof. Michael's pace of explanation is nice. I'd recommend people who want to know the basics of corporate finance take this course only after Accounting course to understand the terms used in the course better.

Very useful. Prof. Roberts explained the concepts very lucidly.

In module-3, 4 I felt as if some lectures were skipped from the original sequence. For e.g. in the end of 4.1 - Return on Investment, the Prof tells that next lecture will be about cost of capital but 4.2 is Sensitivity Analysis. Similarly at the end of 3.3 - Forecasting Free Cash Flow we are told that the next lecture will discuss decision criteria but 4.1 is Return on Investment starts by stating that last lecture discussed sensitivity analysis.

I rechecked the sequence of the lectures from the Coursera so to me it seems some videos are missed somewhere.

Thank you for a wonderful learning experience.

Well taught, practical approach, good example and quiz problems. Overall sort of a minimalist coverage of the topic, but those who don't need an overly in-depth coverage of material will appreciate this. The presented concepts are necessary for basic understanding of business decisions but with this foundation you are prepared to learn much more. The course could benefit from additional real-life examples and concepts from financial decision making. A previous version of the course included discussions about leverage and involvement of financial institutions in project funding. A project with scenario analysis would be enlightening.

Prof. Roberts starts off really well with the 1st two weeks, covering Time Value of Money, Discounting & Compounding, Shortcuts for Annuities & Perpetuities, APR & EAR, Term Structure and leading into the 3rd week with Decision Making with NPV, IRR, and Payback period. However, I found it a bit complex to understand some of the Tablet case spreadsheet explanations. It, all of a sudden, felt a bit overwhelming relative to the topics covered earlier. The discussions on Sensitivity Analysis could perhaps use simpler examples like those in Week 4 to explain Comparative Statics and Break Even Analysis. A great course, nevertheless.

The videos were well put together. The teaching style is easy to follow. A few tweaks to the course and the quizzes will make it a bit more interesting and challenging. The professor could ask more hypothetical questions during the lectures that regular students in his classes or online discussion forums ask. There could be more quizzes and more questions in each quiz. The very rigid format in answering questions is honestly a bit cumbersome and confusing. Instead multiple choices can be given to take the formatting out of the equation. Lack of active mentorship is a downside that needs to be corrected.

I love the course. It gives a great focus on one major focus in finance and that is the DCF/Time Value of Money. The course really serves as a great and very well rounded introduction to the use of that tool in practice, which in turn serves as a platform through which more complex concepts can be built.

My only reservation is that the course in sessions prior had more challenging problem sets. Fortunately, I downloaded them all, but I feel as though maybe a few more assignments wouldn't hurt.

But in the sessions prior, it was overwhelming how much there was! So I understand the rationale!

It is a concise course which gives a good intro to the topic. I love the fact the course teaches you to think of Finance as a real world topic, not just numbers on a spreadsheet thus making it more exciting and useful. I'd recommend to include more practice materials. The other thing is, I understand students are encouraged to learn together, but some times there are conflicting opinions and it would be good to have the input of the lecturer to resolve any misunderstandings. Students are enthusiastic and want to help each other but obviously not always can answer everything clearly.

This course provides an excellent intro to corporate finance, and does a superb job covering all the basics in a clear an succinct fashion. I felt the transition in content from time value of money to financial instruments, such as bonds, was a bit jarring, abruptly leaving the student to grasp (or fail to grasp) the intuitive connection between the two topics. While I generally like the brevity of the material, some topics will require the student to seek supplemental education, from sources like Investopedia.

The course is excellent. I only finished it with more interest and questions, which I think is a good sign. Since the problem sets are not multiple choice, they are excellent learning tools and demand a firm grasp of the material and prior practice with the formulas. My one constructive criticism would be that there are no explanations for the problems. When I had a wrong answer in the problem sets, there was no good way to troubleshoot and correct my response. The message board Q&A did not help enough.

Good explanations to key concepts in corporate finance. However, explanations for problems were nonexistent (the forums provided some help, but "official" answers would be better. Additionally, as it is a numbers situation, more problems to practice on (e.g. non-quiz problems) would be an improvement. Finally, it was difficult to know where in my "trunk" of knowledge this new "limb." Overall helpful, but probably more worthwhile if paired with other related classes (I'm now enrolled in financial accounting).

It looks like a new course which needs a lot of work. It would be difficult to follow if you don't have any business education and a basic understanding of accounting. The instructor covers tons of materials in a very short amount of time so be prepared to write things done.

The quizzes are buggy with errors and I hope the admin will fix the issue soon. Plus, the quiz the entirely mathematical with no regard to the concept we learned in the videos. I passed the quiz 3 without watching the materials at all.

Please find a way to post the quiz answers. As a professor of engineering myself, I understand cheating is practiced among students, but to try to prevent it at the cost of the mostly other, honest students' learning experience is unfair.

There needs to be more explanation of how to input values correctly into the blanks on the quizzes. I believe I had most all of the answers correct, however those I did not receive credit for were likely mostly due to error in numerical format.
