I've enjoyed this course. Prof. Standen gives a very basic but clear overview of the most common financial topics, wished I had this course a couple of years ago it would have made my life way easier.

An excellent well-rounded course and perfect for anyone who would like to gain some insight into financial practices. I would highly recommend this course, "Finance for Non-Financial Professionals."

This was really, really hard. But this was a really good course and I learned a lot. The instructor was really personable and spoke like a person, and not as a robot. I felt like I was taking a class rather than listening to a recording.

David made this course really easy and smooth. The way he gives the lectures makes you think everything makes sense and actually simple. This was I never lost focus and got my course quickly. The content of the course is also pretty deep for just 4 weeks which made me surprised. I felt like I learned really much and now I wanna go out to the market and do some "market research" for new investments! Thanks for this course and thanks David for is natural talent.

Appreciate to have more examples with illustrations to make it easier to understand since there are too many concepts in a short period of time.

This is wonderful course to get overview on finance for non-financial professionals. The professor did a great job explaining the concepts in layman terms without getting into number crunching. The concepts are explained easily so that one can understand the overall picture without getting into details.

I would highly recommend it to others who would like to get a quick overview in this subject.

You may have wondered why brokers may get it wrong, and why accountant may willing, or unwillingly, do the same. Surely, Finance is a very complex matter and keep it simple cannot be a bad thing. If you want to know more without getting just more confused instead, this course meets your needs. For me, it provided outstanding learning/time ratio...!

It was quick and easy to understand certain financial calculations and its market considerations to understand company performance/worth. It would have been good to know more about actual calculations for NPV and IRR. Conceptually content is there but practical implementation confidence did not gained from this material

Great Course Overall!

The instructor does a great job at explaining these fundamental concepts, for which I now feel confident I am able to build on.

I did, however, find a few kinks.

In the GAP Dupont analysis, the ROE was not thoroughly explained - most students (including myself) arrived at a 41.8 while the assignment stipulated that the answer was 43.

For the Multiples valuation method example, the ranges of Equity Value given at the conclusion were not the actual ranges reflected in the math.

Thank you, David. I enjoyed this class thoroughly, and learned so much! I feel much more confident in being able to work directly with accountants and finance professionals. As you said, there is so much more to learn, and I'm thinking about going back to University to take an Accounting Degree. The pace with which you conduct your lessons is very nice and your diction is pleasant and easy to understand. The real life examples help

I would have never thought that a course on finance could be so interesting.

Call me ignorant but normally numbers and financial terms send me to bed. The delivery of the course is very well presented and the tutor is genuinely interested in giving the examples that we can really relate to with our limited knowledge.

If you are management or want to have your business one day, please take this course.

This course is great! If you are an entrepreneur or any professional who would like a better understanding of basic business finance this course is for you. This helped me even in my own life in deciphering which businesses to invest in and even in figuring out businesses to do business with. It also will help you in planning your finances! The professor was engaging and easy to understand.

I really loved the course. It kept me glued to my computer screen most of the time. David made it so easy going, he didn't bore us with too many details that we would not understand as non-finance professionals. Just the right stuff at the right dose. With this course, I can say I am a financial literate. Thank you, David!

I found the subject matter to be challenging, but it was clearly communicated. The instructor did an excellent job at delivering this difficult material to me, a non-math person. I feel that I understand some of the basic elements of accounting and finance, and I look forward to applying these concepts to my own business,

As a non-financial professional I found this course very easy to follow. It's a good balance between explaining basic concepts without going too deep into calculations without being superficial. This course is much better than others I have taken, this professor is very good in summarizing and explaining the theories.

I have taken traditional courses about Finance for Non-Financials. With this course, non Financials are able to understand what Finance & Accounting is, and the most relevant concepts required for business in real life.

David Standen makes complex concepts for non financial people, really easy tu understand.
