The Management Accounting for Decision making course was an amazing experience. I learned a lot of new things and the content of the course was really good. The topics were explained properly by Mr Narsimhan and the ungraded and the additional questions helped us understand the course better. Thank you Sir and the IIMB team.

The course was beautifully organised, videos were clear in speech & observing. As a coordinator it was a excellent opportunity to achieve more information, case studies & ungraded questions. I enjoyed the Prof. Narishiman's case discussion very much. Since our students are of UG level they would have liked formulas, example (sums) that are fully solved & give them sample question paper - MCQ. I would like to thank Ms. Ramya, Ms Aarthi, Ms. Vishnupriya & Mr. Prabhu for fulfilling everything I requested for.

If you are a layman and yet want to face the MBA (Fin), here's a short course most suitable for you. The instructor in his own soft flowing inimitable style is simply superb in explaining the tough principles. The examples are really Hi-Q
