It was easy to digest the material and to comprehend the basic models and techniques that are needed to evaluate projects.About Prof. Estrada I would like to say that he is brilliant!

A big Thanks to Prof. Estrada and the team.

Prof. Estrada has sincerely created and delivered the course content.

It is the best course I've taken in Coursera and EDX, it made me want to continue studying because prof. Estrada was very understanding in his financial terms and approaches.I searched for more courses in this matter (financial/business) with IESE but did not find anything else.

Prof. Estrada got the right balance between theory and real-life examples and is a great lecturer.

It has given me a deeper and broader perspective on issues on which I was already numerically proficient such as IRR and NPV, and yet Prof. Estrada does this with a few, simple sentences and examples.

I must thank Prof. Estrada and the IESE team for this outstanding learning experience.

Prof. Estrada explained the basic concepts very well.
