Before atempting this MOOC I was not suspecting how Public Speaking can be worked and improved so much. This MOOC requires a lot of work but it is really worth it! Dr Matt Garrity is very good and its enthousiasm of communicating you its knowledge is really motivating. Some would say there is too much Video, but this is a MOOC that try to teach you something that is profundly subjective, so... You will learn things that you will surprisely used a lot in your professional or private life, and that allows also you to understand better speeches of others. Hope one day you will be able to choose another langage than english for your speeches, because assignements are very much too hard for a native in the given time. Definitively one of the MOOC that you have to do...

I have to say that I was very amazed of what can offer such type of MOOC when I started it. But the tone and the visible kindness of both professors and of the main administrator was so impressive that it gives me immediatly the need to continu. I spent 15 very interesting week to get to know better of myself and persue an improvment goal. This is now I've ended it that I really understand the title of the MOOC. This MOOC change my perspective about the way I can change and improve my behavior and give me the key to unlock the immunty I have to change, even if I want. No need to say that I did thank the team a lot. Moreover, I did not succeed to create a group of work and did it all by myself, with publication on the forum. My surprised was very big because regularly, a staff member respond to my questions about my progress, or encourage me on the path so far. Moreover, this way of behavioring is a dynamic that will last way much after the MOOC. To be done imperatively by whoever try to change something about his behavior without success up to so far. AMAZING!!! PS : This is Harvard class, so serious and not "addictive" or intend to sell you something. This is just for you...

This MOOC is in French so I write the review in French. J'ai suivit le MOOC sur l'évaluation d'entreprise sur COURSERA et le professeur du MOOC faisait référence à celui-ci ce qui m'a décidé à le suivre. Je n'ai pas été déçut du contenu du MOOC et de la qualité des enseignements du professeur du MOOC, P. Quiri, qui enseigne à HEC. J'ai appris beaucoup de chose et constaté que c'est un excellent complément à l'autre MOOC et qu'il convient d'ailleurs mieux de le faire en préambule. J'ai opté pour la version payante de la 5ème semaine afin de faire l'examen et d'obtenir le certificat (il n'y a pas de cours en 5ème semaine). L'examen est relativement difficile, comme pour l'autre MOOC, mais en procédant avec ordre méthode et en travaillant un peu, on arrive à obtenir des notes non élimminatoire. Le cas d'étude était très intéressant et l'on se surprend à faire une analyse pas trop mauvaise de la situation... Globalement je suis très satisfait de ce MOOC, le seul bémol est le prix un peu élevé de l'option payante (70$) mais il y a un tarif pour les étudiants. Ce MOOC demande cependant un peu de sèrieux et de prise de recul, et n'est pas à prendre à la légère. Comme il y a une évaluation par les pairs dans la version payante (5ème semaine) on s'apperçoit en effet que certaines personnes sont un peu limite au vu de la pauvre qualité de leur analyse. A recommander +++ pour qui veut comprendre un peu plus la finance.

I was very interested by the subject who I did no nothing about as I'm not an amercian citizen. I find it well done, and very well presented by a professor that speak very clearly. The reference documents and web site refered, were very interesting also. Unfortunately, I did take the course after the 2nd week, and was not able to do the peer assignement, but I succeed to get a completion certificate as this assignement was only 20%. I did like a lot the doucumentary refered in the course.

I did not have any experience of the subject, just the basic of acounting required by the course, and this require me some work but I succeed to understand and do not so bad at the exams. This course in French is with an outstanding professor of one of the best commercial school of France and was very interesting. Mastered with a lot of professionalisme by the professor and his team, it alterns very well practical case, exercise, QCM. The final exam was very interesting and the correction of the exercise very well explain. Live session were also very interesting, as they include professional practitians from renown banks and financial company. No way you can miss the next edition of this MOOC if you're interested in the subject !
