TOP REVIEWS FROM INTRODUCTION TO CORPORATE FINANCE
Course was good to understand the overall concepts, however few terms like from where exactly the discount rates come from, concept of cost of capital, how the assumptions in values are made etc
I think it is better to have financial accounting course first before starting this course. I just feel the assignments are too less because some course contents are not covered in these questions.
This course is built in a write way, every lecture has a review, new material and a summery which is very helpful.
The prof. is very clear and understandable and the homework really helps!
Quizzes need to be updated so that all correct answers are options. Quizzes could also cover a wider variety of topics. That said, the information is presented in a way that is fairly accessible.
