Though I have years of experience but I never had enough guts to even look at my payslip in detail let alone core financing concepts. But this course has given me confidence and strength to dive into world of finance and accountability as I am bringing my own startup in. Content was good and Prof. MSN is very good in explanation. I would recommend this course to whoever who think that Finance and Accounting is difficult to comprehend.

Believe me if you have no background of accounting and finance and just by doing this course you can debate with anyone in the industry on accounting and finance issues . Tremendous delivery of lectures , the content is a bit challenging to me especially week 4 to week 6 . And thumbs up from side IIMB is doing awesome work .

This was a really enjoyable course. I learnt a lot, especially for someone with no prior accounting exposure. The course was a little bit fast paced but it is normal for a MOOC. The webinars were great, however not a lot of time were given to work on the assignments before them (just 2 days). The teacher is excellent and provides feedback when asked. I will definitely recommend taking this MOOC.

Please provide explanations after the completion of assignments. Course should be more detailed as everything taught was taught a bit quick. The concepts to keep in mind will often be forgotten this way. There should be more emphasis on giving concepts.

The course is really helpful for all managers, even if you are not having enough finance background. It is structured and presented in a simple and attractive way with quality content. The knowledge and dedication of the instructor is commendable. I would suggest to extend the duration of the course, which will help the instructor to explain some of the concepts in more detail.

The course instructor is great but I felt the course content taught was pretty fast.There should have been more time spent on the examples he used to give.Every new video has so many new terminologies & the time one comes to week 3 or week 4, one most probably forgets what was taught in the earlier weeks. The course is pretty theoretical.There should have been more sessions on example solving like in a few cases where Sir sits & makes you understand the workings of an example through excel sheets. the case study sessions are pretty good. Also, the explanations/solutions should be provided after the completion of a particular assignment/week.

Excellent course. Comprehensive on coverage. In a short time, I could gain good knowledge on many things on financial accounting, management accounting and finance. The instructor simplified every topic and I could apply many in my job. I used the template provided to assess the financial health of my company. Every topic covered in management accounting is relevant. All three topics of Corporate finance are really good and most practical. I could not attend the webinars but saw the recordings and could experience a personal touch. The session on personal financial planning is a direct benefit to me. In one of the lectures, the instructor said money has time value. I find the course is 'value for time'. Strongly recommended if you want to get away from your discomfort in accounting and finance topics.

I have been following the course with great Interest. I am quite impressed by how Mr. Narasimhan makes complex concepts simple with clear examples and problems at the end of each lesson. As a novice in the field of business I am greatly enlightened at the concepts in Accounting & finance. Kudos to Narasimhan and IIMB in bringing out such a elaborate course in a compact manner.

The course is just started and I completed the first week. The course is comprehensive - everything that a manager needs to know in accounting and finance. The delivery is very practical and I am able to connect most of the examples. Learning to prepare accounting through accounting equation is very interesting. I was always worried about debit and credit but the course has not used any such thing. The whole topic was dealt with in a simple and meaningful way. I also attended Saturday's live webinar case study session. An interesting case and useful value addition. Looking forward more from the course.
