This class was tough.
This course requires a lot of time, focus and knowledge in finance. I had a tutor and still struggled with grasping everything that was going on. There are only 6 assignments that must be completed for the entire course (this includes the final, proctored exam) but they are very difficult and time consuming. One of the assignments is a minimum 20 page paper that is due about a week before the final exam. Fortunately, there are no surprises and everything is given to you in the syllabus. The coaches are great communicators and the professor can be lenient.
The class is geared towards teaching students the basic concepts of managerial finance with special emphasis on strategy orientation in the major areas such as Foreign Exchange, Global Markets, Global Institutions, Global Crisis, Risk Management, Global Investments and Global Business Finance.

Advice for students:
Stay on the assignments and DO NOT procrastinate. A tutor probably would be beneficial if you struggle with financial analysis, accounting or both.
