An excellent course overall. I really enjoyed the learning experience and look forward to more courses from Wharton. Special thanks to professor Michael Roberts for providing great value in 1 course.

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!

too introductory. I thought it would deepen much more in Financial Concepts such as EVA, ROE, ROIC, EBITDA, EBITDAX, TAX BURDEN, etc.

Disappointing. Useful and you will learn something but gaps inbetween the lectures and quizzes that are unsatisfying.

Enough Formulas aren't presented

Some formulas are made complicated, while there are alternate and better formulas

Just a review of NPV from college, lectures are ok but quizzes terrible! oversimplifying and mistakes everywhere

Examples and discussion were not relevant to quizzes. Would have preferred to have more quantitative practice.

​too many formulas and math problems, just as helpful to understand the why and what vs just the how! Ugh!

Great course, but TOO MANY BAD QUIZ QUESTIONS WITH NO RIGHT ANSWERS! And ZERO attempt to correct these

no available explanation of problem sets makes "learning"/full understanding frustrating to impossible

Seriously, stop locking assignments for students. Money has a time value, remember?

Weeks 1 and 2 great. Weeks 3 and 4 were a complete disaster.

Redundant to have a lecturer in this course when all he does is read from the slides. Very limited coverage apart from NPV, lack of practical examples, ridiculously easy quizzes that anybody could pass without paying much attention to the video lectures. Disappointing from Wharton as opposed to the rest of the courses in this business specialization that they offer.

I'm not sure about this, but is the course incomplete? I heard the Prof mentioning that he would go into cost of capital but the last video lecture ended with return on investments. Rather strange. Explanations were rather short and it was rather difficult to follow how the formulae worked. Perhaps the content needs to be spaced out a little.

The questions in their assessment are very flawed. Students reflected the problem on the forum for months but the questions and answer options never got changed. I don't really understand the rationale behind this (as I see that there are official replies on some of the feedback in the forum but just never fix the issue)...

T​oo many questions on the quizzes (when you total them across all weeks) either contained the wrong example of the formulas to use or did not have the correct answer amongst the options. This was the first (I have one more plus the capstone) Wharton class that had me questioning my purchase.

The subject material is fascinating but the method of presentation by the professor is extremely dry. I wish this course was more extensive like Dr. Schiller's Financial Markets course at Yale. He manages to bring to life complex financial concepts in a way that is both enlightening and fun.

What a joke! I have spent HOURS on some quizes trying to figure out why my answer isn't an option. Turns out the right answer isn't an option.

The profrssors are good, but your grade will be low becuase the quizes are wrong.

It is definitely not an introductory course. It is way too advanced and does not teach the basics. The course was just too much into formulas.

The course is supposed to be aimed at beginners in corporate finance, yet as a beginner, I found it very hard to follow.
