TOP REVIEWS FROM INTRODUCTION TO CORPORATE FINANCE
The professor explanation is super easy to understand. It also quite comprehensive so I can understand almost every big point the Professor gave me. I love to learn more from Professor Roberts :D
Content was good and well paced. However, it would have been good to also show how to work out the calculations using Excel as this would mimic the real life scenario as opposed to manual calculations
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.
This is a nice introductory course but it seems very light on material, especially what you are paying for. Believe it should be more thorough and cover more topics. Michael Roberts was great.
