Boosts your up-to-date understanding of how strategy and valuation come together. It helped me better understand my PE clients' buy & build strategies from a growth option valuation perspective.
Demanding at times but overall one of the better courses that make you think before you have to answer. I also enjoyed the ability to do some extra work if you are into honorable certificate.

The course was of very high quality and the reaching by Professor Smit was excellent. Only thing, few of the explanations could have been more elaborate which might have helped me a lot (being from non-finance background)

An interactive overview of advanced valuation strategy. Classes webcasts are excellent and most assignments are challenging. Would like to see an extended class with more in depth examples and case studies.

The course is really interesting and it helps to understand and to deep an economic overview about investment.
It is really complicated if you haven't a economic background and it needs some extra studies.

More nuances with respect to in-depth calculations of certain metrics used ( beta values , factor values of u and d ) for example should be explained more explicitly with course work to compliment it .

If the screen had subtitles, it would have helped a lot. The course was compact but relevant. Some more and detailed explanation would have helped in better understanding of key concepts.

Really enjoyed the course! Technical, and testing it pushed my to properly understand the videos and readings, and for me to further my understanding in certain areas.

The course was quite good and unique and also very helpful for looking at things from a wider perspective. Helped me in understanding valuation and options concepts.

It's a course that teaches you a lot, but you need previous knowledge in valuation, option and game theory. The course basically tells you how to combine them
por Rohit M•
Good course but for a beginner, it's hard to understand the real options theory concept and game theory. More videos to be added to make it beginner-friendly.

Very interesting MOOC, some questions were not so clear in my opinion.
Full answers would have been nice (may be because i was not familiar with the subject).
por Álvaro R R•
Very useful the first half of the course, as it is very practical.
It is maybe too theoretical the second half of the course.
Overall, 100% recommended.
por Sandra Q•
A course that goes beyond the standard finance courses in explaining what practices are used in valuations of different types of companies/industries.
por Camilo E S C•
Such an excellent course! only aspect I would change is that the quizzes that require calculation must have an excel sheet
por José M E P•
The accent of the professor is sometimes hard to understand. However, it is a very interesting course overall.
por Jatin N•
Very interesting and challenging. But the value additions point of view, it is highly recommended.
por Piet J G•
Maybe reconsider the rounding mechanism in the quizzes. All in all great content, learned a lot.
por Marat K•
Oftentimes, the certificate quizzes were way too distant from the content of the course itself.
por Dali S•
unique subject ... excellent graphics ... Pr's accent difficult to understand sometimes
por Parisa E•
the course was good but it could have been better if more real examples were embedded!
por Javier J V•
A highly interested method to consider a company value beyond the free cash flow NPV
por Fernando S•
I think it is great for having a broad view of what advanced corporate finance is.
por Ulf L•
Really well strucntured vourse that goes well beyond mere DCF analysis.
por Mat J•
Perhaps you include some form of spreadsheet based learning tools.

Really useful when it comes to valuation and investment decisions.
