This course provides an approachable introduction to a topic that is intimidating to many people without a business background. Professor Damodaran is a great lecturer – engaging, funny and incredibly knowledgeable. The title is linked to his page which contains slides, tests and solutions in addition to video lectures. Alternately, you can follow this YouTube playlist. Also worth checking out is his excellent blog, where he posts his analysis and commentary on the latest IPOs, earnings calls, etc.
If you’re looking for a lighter introduction to Corporate Finance, you may want to instead take Wharton’s Introduction to Corporate Finance on Coursera. However, unlike the NYU course, this one is not always available, so you may need to wait until the next start date.
