Naveen16 May 2021

NPV and IRR concepts should be more clearer than the they explained here. i understand it will be confusing to basic level students but that gives more comfort in understanding the real time examples.

Simone7 February 2021

It is a very good course full of examples. It is in line with the expectations from basics to mid-high usage. It is not for advanced users who want to learn VBA, macros and that kind of things.

Rajbhushan25 January 2021

yes it was indeed, but i was looking for some more financial terms to use in a model, such as ratios, WACC analysis etc maybe that's a valuation model. i was hoping for that. but it was a good experience. maybe add above things or make another course, or if you have already please let me know on narendrapatharavat@gmail.com

Adam16 January 2021

I like the information, but would prefer exercises given to us to complete, as is the case with you Excel course for Managers. The practise is what really puts the course value over the top.

David10 January 2021

Yes it was helpful though I felt it had too much focus on statistical theory which could have been rebalanced to provide more case study examples which were really valuable.

Emotongha28 September 2020
