Though I have been through Intro Accounting some 3 or 4 times through different classes and seminars, I still found myself learning from this detailed and straight forward presentation of information.

The modules were extremely informative and nothing less to say, Oktay sir's presentations were very easy to understand even for a person like me who has no prior knowledge about Financial Accounting.

The Professor Mr.Oktay Urcan was crystal clear in explaining all the concepts with really good examples and illustrations ( Walmart, Illini Supermarket and others..). Loved the way the content is structured and the practice and graded quizzes at the end of every module made sure we knew our concepts really well.
A special mention about the peer-graded assignment which was not more of answering questions rather testing our ability to analyse various articles and present a good summary !
This was my first Coursera course and I'm happy that it was best !

A must have course. This one, added to Formal Financial Accounting course, gave me a solid basis on which I can count in further courses and future accounting situations. M. Oktay Urcan is a wonderful teacher with an efficient methode and way of explaning thing by simplifying them. Moreover, the case method makes his teachning even more realistic, comprehensive and applicable in daily life, in contrast to the the various teachings we have in real life which are too theoric and fuzzy. Best regards Sir Oktay Urcan.

Module 4 is not consistent to understand. I found it easy to apply recording to Unearned revenue but was lost when it came to module 4. It didn't seem consistent . Then the case videos there was total consistecy loss where I had to break my head what to find where. I have to depend on the professor or study group on Module 4.
Update 1/16/2021 - I have updated to give all points as this was my first iMBA class I was not sure what was coming towards me.

I was so excited about the class that I went ahead and completed the coursework prior to the class beginning. Having a Finance and Accounting background made the class easier but I am really looking forward to the live sessions so that I may sharpen my financial accounting skills. I feel that I still have much room for improvement and am confident that Professor Urcan will provide me with the tools to succeed in this class.

Too often, smart hardworking busy people miss out on education because of traditional linear learning. Learn on your terms. With stackable online content from Gies College of Business, you can take self-paced classes, earn transcriptable credit, pause, earn a degree. Switch in stack coursework, earn a certificate, or learn however you want. You'll get expert-led education and big or bite-sized increments.

The course is very well structured and easy to understand the basic concepts. The prof has done a great job explaining the concepts. Every module has enough practice questions to apply the concepts thought. The only downside is for some of the solutions the reasoning was not explained clearly. So I got confused about a few concepts. Other than that it is amazing and I had a great learning experience

Being completely new to accounting, I feel like I learnt a lot in the four weeks. The course has been structured really well to build your understanding in a gradual but steady way. Though a lot of material is covered, Prof Urcan explains the concepts very well, so that anybody can follow. I enjoyed the case studies and the challenging quizzes. Many thanks for this excellent course.

This is an excellent course! I really enjoyed learning from the wide variety of materials available. It was intense but it's worth every bit of your time even if you do not really have a background in this area as in my case. Now I have a deeper understanding of Financial Accounting but I know its just the beginning. I would recommend this course to anyone and everyone. Great job!

I learned so much in so little time. I felt the lectures were the same quality as college classes. The amount of material made it easy to practice what was learned. I loved the module quizzes that reinforced learning. I truly am a better person because of this course. I have tried other websites and by far UofI + Coursera is #1. Thank you so much for democratizing education.

I enjoyed the course very much. The pace was quite fast, but that suited me as I had already completed a bookkeeping course about ten years ago that covered much of the same ground so the course was very useful to refresh my memory, while learning new aspects of financial accounting at the same time. I thought the assignment was particularly interesting.

Everything in the course is very logical and easy to follow, the cases help with further developing the skills that we learn throughout the course. I would only have to say that the final module (i.e. module 4), increases the level of complexity by a lot, compared to the increase in complexity from module 1 to module 2 and module 3.

This course covers the most important topics in accounting and it also provides a lot of real world use cases with balance sheets of real companies. Going through these use cases will boost your confidence that you did not "only" learn some theory but that you can also apply your knowloedge.
Thank you for providing the course!

Great course as a refresher on some of the core accounting concepts. Instructor provides material in a concise and easy to understand manner and real world examples are given as well via financial statements. Quizzes allow you to work through examples and ensure you understand concepts without being overly easy or difficult.

Excellent course for a refresher in financial accounting. The modular aspect and how the content was broken up with frequent practice quizzes and then a larger practice problem set--complete with solutions in paper and video--for each section was very effective. Prof. Urcan was very effective and clear in lectures.

The Course is very practical. I really appreciate the practice quizzes since they allow me time to have a greater understanding of each lectured session. A very good course that I would recommend to anyone who desires to improve or refresh their knowledge of the principles that were explained in all the modules.

This course made me understand basics of Accounting easily. I had read many books before taking this course but I was struggling to understand the basics. Prof Urcan explains all the cumbersome concept in ease and all the relevant case questions help in understanding the practical implications of accounting.

Excellent, full skilled course and proffessional lecture. It brings world at home through critical lessons. Other side this is a game changer in the way the modules are corresponding one to the other. In the same way, students' potential in the higher learning are being recognised and address with care.
