  • Joe V: Professors Jenter and Schoar made it very clear from the beginning that despite your Finance background the class was going to reveal new things even for the "veterans"in Finance. The discounted cash flow exercise certainly made it for me. This class is a must despite your knowledge of accounting or Finance. They made it simpler for me!!! Joe Velarde
