Through the lens of finance, the instructor team challenges learners to first explore critical decision-making in a frictionless world and then apply tangible and influential parameters to the thought process. The covered topics collectively form the core of financial management and provide learners with the fundamental tools for modern business in preparation for advanced business endeavors and to excel at future educational endeavors, including rigorous MBA programs. This series of courses builds upon the success of multiple, innovative MOOCs and other learning experiences created by Professor Kaul, infuse a real-world perspective from the vast experience of Professor Purnanandam, and present a rigorous set of assessments co-developed by Dr. Lei.
