TOP REVIEWS FROM FINANCE FOR NON-FINANCIAL PROFESSIONALS
I've enjoyed this course. Prof. Standen gives a very basic but clear overview of the most common financial topics, wished I had this course a couple of years ago it would have made my life way easier.
I have learned a lot from this course, as there are so maney things in this course which i needed in the start of my teaching career, thanks to Coursera and Staff specially for Instructor.
The course was really good and interesting. I got good hold on the basics of finance. Prof David Standen taught the course really well in a practical way. I enjoyed the learning experience.
This was a good overview course. I did have to pause quite often to read and re-read the powerpoints to really absorb what was being discussed. The instructor moved quickly through the material.
