Overall, the course is good, but it doesn't provide details about how to apply it in the mini case quiz. I think the some of the key answers in the mini case quiz are wrong. I already tried 5 times, luckily I figured out the answers from the discussion of week 4 (mini case quiz). However, the discussion is confusing, the assistant teacher doesn't really explain the way to do it. As of May 27, there are still upcoming questions about the mini case since 4 years ago (2016), please recheck again the mini case quiz! Almost 90% got stuck in the mini case quiz. I hope the Coursera and Yonsei University can fix as soon as possible.

I think some explanations on finance concepts are shallow. It basically teaches you some formulas on excel for Bond valuation and then expands it for enterprise valuation. This is a good approach, but I think there should be at least a week of courses with the ground rules of finance concepts. Also, by the end it felt a bit rushed and there was little explanation on why each formula was used.
Moreover, I think there should be a bit more direction on the assignements, such as the number formatting expected.

The content i felt was less elaborate and left me gasping while doing the final quiz, which needs to be revoked at it terms of answers input. Also it would help to have couple of questions like the final quiz provided with answers provided along with explanation, which the will cut down our un necessary queries on discussion group.
Delivery of this course in that direction could be improved further.

Great information to start with the DCF approach. A number of assets (e.g., .xlsx files) were not available when they were supposed to be. Also, there's much to be done to foster collaboration (e.g., study groups) with the users taking the course. I appreciate the introduction, however.

The miniquiz seems wrong. While calculating terminal value, we have to consider 4% growth rate where you'll get the right answer if you take 40% growth rate. Please correct this. Many students are getting stuck because of this in the miniquiz.

The course is good, but the examples developed are very easy for the questions that in the evaluations, in my case it was possible due to previous knowledge, but if I had had to depend on the course, perhaps I did not achieve it.
par Federico C•
Although the course includes good explanations and examples I believe it's a little bit confusing at the quizzes. And everything is explained by examples but it's a bit lack of fundamentals.
par Hala E•
The material provided is not comprehensive, I had to use external readings that was not referenced and the quizzes answers need revision
par Pablo B H•
Some topics were not described thoroughly. However, on the quiz you had to know them very well in order to pass.
par Xingzhang Z•
quizzes are generally more difficult than taught in the videos - prior knowledge in finance is somewhat needed.
par Sahil A•
Everything was fine except for Terminal value concept, as I felt it was not taught clearly.
par Vanessa R M•
The final quizz does not have the format of how answers should be
par Peter S•
Videos and Instruction were enjoyable. Quizzes were convoluted

The course has good content but it is not focused on startups
par Gabriel H T T•
Overall, it helps to understand some concepts.
par Rubal C•
Concepts are not easily understood.
par Marco F O C•
no son claras las preguntas
par Aditi V•
Difficulty level is low.
par Julian V•
The course gives some good insight and concepts with the matter and some tools.
However, for a person with no precedent knowledge with that (financial) matter, it requires some "brain gymnastic" and important notions need to be more detailed (i.e Terminal Value in 3.3 and 4.1).
Furthermore, the degree of complexity between the quiz and the courses is to large, despite the forum provided some hints or partial answer. Additional examples similar to the quiz should be provided.
I was hoping for a more streamline method. If I have to value a company in the future, I would like to have a clear step-by-step method I could go back to and use.
par Kinan H•
Thank you professor, I appreciate your effort very much.
I would have appreciated more explanation about the terms presented in this course, you have done a great job explaining the method of solving the problems and exercises, but it was a bit difficult to understand the definitions of most of the terms, for example terminal value, increase and working capital and why increase not decrease.
par Lukáš K•
The course is very much focused in the method of DCF, but there is a lack of information regarding how to apply it to startups in practice.

WEEK 4 CASE STUDY QUIZ IS MISLEADING. IT DOES NOT MATCHES THE SOLUTIONS FOR CASE STUDY GIVEN IN THE CLASSROOM VIDEO

Hard to understand the lecturer.
