CORPORATE FINANCE II: FINANCING INVESTMENTS AND MANAGING RISK からの人気レビュー
Excellent material to drive and support the discussions introduced in the live sessions. Some materials may need a review (particularly wording), but it does not compromise the overall content at all.
I didn't realise how much I'd learn in this course. So many concepts I've touched on before and thought I knew a bit about, but in hindsight I really didn't understand, until I completed this course.
Excellent course that gives excellent knowledge and directions to move in the industry.\n\nProfessor makes materials easy understandable and gives his advice, that can be implemented in the future.
Though the module 4 is a tough one, I find it comprensive enough in making a good financial decision particularly in understanding the LBO and the M&A. Such learning is very important.
Interesting information, but the prof goes really fast through examples and doesn't show the actual math...this isn't really helpful for folks that are new to finance.
Excellent conclusion from what I learned in the the first course, this makes it more interesting of course, but I would recommend to take both courses, Thanks Almeida
Risk Management section felt very rushed - would have appreciated a slower pace and more detailed description for such a complicated topic - especially Hedging!
Course contains some difficult concepts. The main benefit is the honors assignments and professor's explanations, which help students understand these topics.
Fantastic Value Adding Course. Very Practical with a lot of good examples. Excellent conceptual breadth and depth also in this course. Highly recommended.
each topic is nicely explained, real life examples are very fruitful.\n\nvoice is low during interview, but it was very fruitful and have learnt a-lot.
A treasure trove of research based information to inform real-world financial decisions; immediately applicable and relevant!
Great Course the teacher is great and he is very dynamic. I am a CFO and I felt I still learned new things from this course.
