Tufts University: EC007 - Financial Economics - Economics - Professor ratings, reviews and much more | JumboAccess
This is a course only offered in the summer, and it's well worth the time away from the beach. As with accounting, Charles Murphy takes a dry subject (capital budgeting, bonds, balance sheets, etc.) and makes it fun. He has a positive, energetic teaching style and wastes no time on personal anecdotes or talking in circles.
More importantly, what makes this course great is Murphy's ability to perfectly explain the subject matter. No one ever leaves the classroom confused. Budding investment bankers and other greedy megalomaniacs will love this finance course. I'm not a big fan of grade inflation, but this guy undeniably deserves five stars.
The textbook packs over 600 pages, and I found it inferior to Murphy's teaching. Because it's a summer course there's a lot to cram in, but we never came across a question subject that hadn't been presented in class. Slackers might get away without reading the book too much. Three exams (80% multiple choice), including homework due on the date of the exam.
