Review: “Gautam Kaul is… the best person to lead you in the world of Finance. Why I think this course is the best introduction to Finance? First – it covers a lot in a human way. Gautam is a great pedagogue and he is a wise man too. It’s good to meet someone like him in a course that grows money on it’s cover. Second – the course is a challenge – the assignments are not easy, they are real financial problems with open answers. You have to put a little effort to complete them, and there is learning generated. Third – now, half a year later I am taking an Accounting and Statistics classes, and I’m surprise how much I already know. Finally – I learned a little Excel too, and to be able to play with Excel is kind of fun.” To read additional reviews on this course, click here.
