One of the most practical courses I have taken in Coursera. Highly recommended for professionals in Business, Strategy, and Finance & Accounting departments, as well as stock market investors.
The course makes accounting interesting and especially the examples are very illustrative. Virtual students bring some fun. The 4th week is however really integrated in the course structure.

The first three weeks needed Problem Sets to apply the learning, something that greatly enhanced the Operations Analytics course.
par Tetiana L•
Курс описан как не требующих предварительных знаний. На самом деле требует определенных первичных знаний, поэтому 3.

Sorry - although the content was good, really didnt like the virtual classroom! Made it hard to concentrate
par Niklas W S•
Ok, course. I don't think it was as well prepared and thought through as the other courses.
par Muhammad H A•
Hastily taught. The instructors were not thorough with the coursework.
par Serene T S H•
difficult for people without accounting background to take.
par Vincent c•
Week 1 to 3 is really good. Week 4 is a waste of time.
par Mridul G•
It's really hard to understand accounting terms.
week 2 was brutally hard. Not expected at all.
par Tiago F T C•
Confusing, but you get some knowledge from it
par Jay S•
Great content but animations are annoying!
par Danyal R•
Difficult and dry subject.

"Dogs cannot play traditional video games due to their lack of opposable thumbs." Is this really content from The Wharton School? I actually had to stop a video in the middle to take a moment and come review this course. While the content is "okay," the presentation is quite terrible. I mean no offense, but the professor needs to step away from GoAnimate and streamline his slides for better consumption. The inclusion of a video clip from a young child (the professor's daughter?) took the cake. I am embarrassed to watch these in any public place where anyone might see my screen. All of this contributes to a somewhat convoluted presentation of the material that I find particularly frustrating and difficult to follow. I suspect I would do better simply reviewing the slides (versus watching the videos).

While I enjoyed this course and the topics covered, I don't feel like the course content matched what the course description stated it was supposed to. I enrolled in the Business Analytics Specialization course with a focus on analyzing a business from the inside, not outside. Of the 4 weeks of the course, I'd say that only week 4 was valid from an internal perspective but it was kept very high level. I'd say this course could be good for a specialization in business market analysis, but not as advertised.
I also found the cartoon classroom questions to be very annoying, almost as bad as fingernails on a blackboard.
par Manish P•
Lot of considerably complex and dry (accounting and statistics!) subject matter covered at a high level without much discussion! Quiz questions are unnecessarily complex - which (IMHO) will discourage / turn off those who are new to this subject matter in completing this course. The last week is pretty interesting though!
I am taking the full business analytic course - and find that the quality and complexity of content is all over the place!! Some are way too simple and some are highly complex.
par Jagannath P•
It was utter difficult for a non financial background students to understand the key concepts.It could have been more simple and intelligible.
par Kasi V M•
very difficult to understand, need bit more depth and fcaulty is speaking bit fast. Few of pdf metrails are not opening to download the same.
par Shailee S•
weeks 1,2 and 3 were not satisfactory according to me. the video lectures were difficult to comprehend. week 4 was very good.
par Panagiotis V•
Too technical in case you are directly involver to accounting. Only week 3 & 4 are somehow related to analytics at all
par Abhishek B•
This course content felt like too much happening all at once at an extremely fast pace. Not a satisfactory experience.
The Quiz doesnt have feedback to wrong answers... Recommend to combine each week's slides in to one pdf file. Thanks
par Michelle C•
Course was not easy to grasp, lost interest after the first week and I barely got through the quiz at the end.
par Nadia V N•
The three first weeks were almost completely dedicated to traditional finance accounting ratio analysis.
par Adwait K•
Very little part of this course is analytics. First few videos are full of financial ratios.
par Bilal F•
Complicated and hard to follow/stay focused
