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.

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.

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.

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 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 Miloš M•
Too far from subject

NOT an analytics course. Just a financial accounting course. The lecturer is decent at best but read quiz questions very carefully as there are slight word changes that are easy to miss.
The most helpful part of this class was the last week (measuring the financial impact of non-financial things). Mainly just don't think this course belongs in this specialization
par Cassidy L•
HORRIBLE professor for the first three weeks. Bad technology use. The weekly information was not nearly enough to complete the very complex quiz questions. They required WAY too many assumptions for being a course that, in my opinion, should be teaching theory, not application.
par Shansong Y•
The course it very dry and technical, the two professors were talking about theory and didn't practice them on case, so it is hard to understand the content. And also the provided materials and courses are not enough to pass the quiz so I ended up studying by myself on Google.
par Wojciech S•
From my own perspective this course of Accounting Analytics has been very unclear conveyed. We are here to gain information, to learn how the numbers on spreadsheet understand better. No totally convinced after a couple weeks spend time a front on screen helped me with it.
par Babuprasad S•
Professors need to undergo a presentation and Instruction Design skills. They were talking a lot and everything was going over my head, the reason was there were not visual prompt for the examples, specifically in the last week.
par Ali A•
Professor Brian Bushee was not the best professor I have had for my courses on Coursera. He taught basics and his questions were quite complicated when compared to what was taught.
par Hrushikesh A•
They are following USA accounting standards making it difficult for commerce or finance people from other countries. Else it's really good
par Daniela C•
Might have enjoyed it more with a different lecturer, I was not a fan of the animations and dog store examples.
par Sheryar P•
The Capstone project has been getting delayed since Jan
Dont expect yourself to complete the specialization
par Rubén G G•
No practical knowledge learnd and no clear examples of the topics. Too complex all the course
par H Q•
Easiest accounting common sense. If you ever took acct , this will be a wasting of time.
par Kartik K•
Barring the last week (thus that star), couldn't have been worse.
par Kevin T C H•
Can't relate questions to its contents
