Ask an Expert

Have a course-related question? Use the form below to submit your question.

To ensure that we answer your question correctly, please indicate course name, module, lesson, video timestamp, and be clear and specific with your question. This enables us to solve your question accurately and get back to you sooner. Here are some examples of clear questions:

  • In the Business Valuation Modeling Part I course, module "Weighted Average Cost of Capital (WACC)" video "WACC Formula", at time 0:20 the instructor refers Kd to the after tax cost of debt. Is the cost of debt essentially the same as the interest rate on the debt?
  • Course: Financial Analysis Fundamentals. Spreadsheet: Efficiency ratio solution. Row 86. Working Capital Funding Gap. The figures are less than 0, so negative. What does this mean?
  • Video: Completing the supporting schedules in Course Advanced Modelling and Valuation - I’m getting lost by the machinations, so apologies if this answer is from the left-field: Why are we using Goal Seek, when the result in line item #179 is the difference between Closing balance and the PP&E on the Balance Sheet?

Due to the high volume of questions, our average response time can be up to 24 hours.

You can submit up to 5 questions per week.
