I would like to thanks Coursera, Yonsei University and the instructor for this magnificent course.

I hope they could add how to calculate WACC, discount rate, Market Value ratio.

some explanation of why he calculates the interest rate for 2015 for a half-year

and why he calculated the Depreciation for the previous year.

I recommend this course for every financial manager and chief accountant.

again thanks a lot Coursera for helping and supporting me.
