Über den Kurs

In this course, you’ll learn the basic fundamentals of corporate finance. Based on the pre-term qualifying courses for Wharton MBA students, Professor Jessica Wachter has designed this course for learners who need a refresher in financial concepts, or for those who are learning about corporate finance for the first time. You’ll identify foundational concepts in corporate finance, such as NPV, Compound and Simple Interest, and Annuities versus Perpetuities. You’ll also learn how to apply the NPV framework to calculating fixed-income valuation and Equity, using hypothetical examples of corporate projects. By the end of this course, you’ll have honed your skills in calculating risk and returns to optimize investments, and be able to assess the right set of financial information to achieve better returns for your firm....

The notes for this course were excellent, and the lectures were concise and easy to follow. Prof. Wachter is easy to listen to and is relaxed and helpful in her explanations.

The instructor and material was great my only complaints are with the Quizzes.

The Quiz questions can be frustrating because it is not always clear how to answer the questions. For example some you need to round to have the correct answer where as others you do not. It is also misleading when the blurb tells you how to write the answer as a dollar amount but then the correct answer is as a percentage. It would be nice is after completing the quiz you were given some help or the right answers so you could learn from your mistakes.

The quizzes were pretty hard. Would have been nice to have a little guidance in solving the problems if you got them wrong. The questions probably could have been written better. One major issue I saw on the quizzes was some of the questions didn't clarify how many decimal places/commas/etc. you need to provide the right answer... If you didn't properly put in format that wasn't explained, you could still have the same correct answer but it would show incorrect. Overall, a good course though. Thank you!

I could sense that Prof. Wachter is super knowledgeable about finance, but the content can feel challenging at times - maybe more examples or upfront background info could help. Also, I wish we had more time with this course so she could take us through the entire syllabus rather than just the first 4 topics. I'm especially interested in CAPM and EMH. The quizzes were pretty brutal and I wish we could see full explanations after we take them. Right now it just says right or wrong.

Course is great! However, would be great if there were more (non grading ) exercises before the quizes. Also, the model of inputing the answers of the tests ( Ex: Rounding, use of dots, two decimal houses ...) Its a bit confusing. Often made mistakes on a test questions due to wrong format input.

Furthermore, Prof. Jessica was great, and I wish we could have a channel of contact with her in order to ask questions about the subjects.

Great introductory course with relevant theoretical and practical examples. Could use some extra resources such as practice questions and more examples to help prepare for the quizzes. There was quite the jump from lecture material to being able to assess the quiz questions conceptually. I had to seek out additional resources to help me understand the concepts on the quizzes.

I really like the fundaments of finance course, but what I don't like is that when I took the module quiz and I got a low percentage grade , It dosen't show what answers you got wrong or right. It just says correct or incorrect . Coursera needs to fix this issue. Overral this is a good quality course and I appreciate Professor Wachter.

A course about present value basics, and valuing annuities, bonds, equities. If you don't have a finance background, I would say the course is challenging, equivalent to college level course, if not harder. Once you get used to the pace, it will be ok, it might take a few rounds of note reviews to get through it. quizzes are challenging as well.

The teacher doesn't like to use slides, newcomers need more visualisation to explain abstract concepts. This course is not good for being the first course if you don't have any knowledge about finance. It might scare people away. I wen to courses 3 and 4 instead and then went back to check course 1 and then I understood better.

The quizzes need to be better explained, there is no proper way to learn from our mistakes. In week 3, the course content could include NVPGO part in the video as well and not just in notes. The concept of delayed perpetuity is also slightly confusing when it comes to applying the formula.

This course has helped me in gaining enormous knowledge of financial management. More power to the instructors and institution and of course "Coursera" which provided me the facility to upgrade my knowledge. Thanks

The course seems well researched-- I just have a hard time grasping these formulas and terms at the same time. They all seem to blend together when you add financial terminology into the algebra.

The course was overall helpful. However, numerous quiz questions included terminology that was not used in the lecture videos, so continuity on that would have enhanced my understanding.

Great course, easy simple explanation. Would be great if after every assignment we can have access to solutions as questions are challenging. Otherwise a good course for a beginner.

There was only one thing I did not like about this course. When you get questions right or wrong on the quiz, there is no explanation or guidance on how to do the problem properly.

It was relatively easy to understand, however, I think there were parts in the quiz that didn't refer back to what we learned. For example, why is c/r valid if it is a perpetuity?

Everything was perfect but the answers to each test would have been appreciated in order to improve and understand better the mistakes made.

I thing students need some background about course because the lecturer and also notes were not enough to answer all the questions

Helpful course with clear lectures by Dr. Wachter.

The quizzes were a bit frustrating in their specific formatting requirements.

This course needs more practice examples. Stand alone attachments can be included as exercise problems for every week.

Quizzes are tough, but great learning. Only suggestion will be to offer more support for quiz answers

The content is good. We need answers for each quiz, so that we can know why we are right or wrong.

A lot more algebra than the title or description suggests but ultimately very useful.
