In this course, you’ll learn the basic fundamentals of corporate finance. Based on the pre-term qualifying courses for Wharton MBA students, Professor Jessica Wachter has designed this course for learners who need a refresher in financial concepts, or for those who are learning about corporate finance for the first time. You’ll identify foundational concepts in corporate finance, such as NPV, Compound and Simple Interest, and Annuities versus Perpetuities. You’ll also learn how to apply the NPV framework to calculating fixed-income valuation and Equity, using hypothetical examples of corporate projects. By the end of this course, you’ll have honed your skills in calculating risk and returns to optimize investments, and be able to assess the right set of financial information to achieve better returns for your firm.

TOP REVIEWS FROM FUNDAMENTALS OF FINANCE
Quote comprehensive but the solution to quiz questions should be provided in order to know the correct way of solving and approaching the question
this is an excellent course. i personally suggest everyone to go through this course once on starting career in finance
The course seems well researched-- I just have a hard time grasping these formulas and terms at the same time. They all seem to blend together when you add financial terminology into the algebra.
Helpful course with clear lectures by Dr. Wachter.
The quizzes were a bit frustrating in their specific formatting requirements.
