This compact introduction to corporate finance lives up to its name -- in 6 weeks it really does cover the key foundations of the subject. The course begins with the basic topic of risk and return, then moves on to diversification, the cost of capital, project evaluation (starring the all-important concept of net present value), and winds up with an overview of corporate value creation. For such a short course, the mix of basic principles and quantitative analysis is nicely balanced. (The math-averse need not fear anything too fancy.) Prof. Estrada is an excellent teacher -- dynamic, articulate, engaging, and confident. He could doubtless make any subject interesting, but the topics he covers in this course have intrinsic appeal for a broad audience; no one will fall asleep during the lectures, which are accompanied by readings from Prof. Estrada's excellent textbooks and short weekly quizzes that put the material into practical...

This worthwhile introduction to corporate finance won't make you a CFO but will certainly help you start thinking like one.

This class is an easy introduction to some of the elements of corporate finance. While not a definitive course for mastery, it serves as a good starting point before jumping into other MOOC's on the subject.
