This course was outstanding! I had no background in business finance, and I now feel that with some review of the material presented in this course, I could read a company's financial documents, calculate ratios to evaluate its financial health, and determine if a company appeared to be financially healthy or not.

Additionally, I have a much better understanding of costs and how to evaluate investment in growth through appropriate projects.

This was a fabulous course and I recommend it for anyone who would be looking to gain an understanding into the financial decision making processes of the corporate world.
