The subject was simplified for beginners in the field of financial market instruments. Instructor explained all the details very clearly. Overall I had a very positive experience with the class
Global Financial Markets and Instruments is a MUST. Excellent instruction! I truly appreciate the opportunity to receive this course from such a prestigious University - Rice University.

Great course and great learning. A very good certification that will add huge value to one's CV.
Further, the course definitely needs to be updated to the year 2020 financial markets scenario.

The course was well structured with a lot of practice questions. I personally struggled with the week 1 financial mathematics. I suggest that the formulas be included in the summary notes.

Great course covering aspects of global financial markets: from the market players to the instruments and the formulas used to make investment decisions and explain market behaviour.

Probably a little elementary for most people signing up for this series of classes, but it was a good review and would be a great intro for those with zero experience with investing.

Course was very advanced. It was mainly focused more on sums and real life problem solving pedagogy rather than teaching basic financial terminology and and its understanding.
創建者 Desire D M•
Generally a great course. Although early on some mathematical steps were brushed through. Besides that it was a very informative course quantitatively and qualitatively.

1. some in video questions pop up before the concept is being introduced or covered; 2. this course gives a pretty good high-level illustration on some basic concepts

A great course for dummies like me to learn the basics of investment industry.
I would appreciate if they incorporate more examples to explain and make things easier.

In general a course is very informative and useful. The issues were only some misconceptions, especially in formulas, between video examples and quiz questions.

Pretty Formula heavy but covers a decent relevant range of topics. A lot of personal research is needed to understand the content more thoroughly.

Overall, the course is fine, however there were several annoying typos / rounding issues, which would prevent you from getting the correct answer.

Decent course, some mistakes however in some of the answers. Some topics could've been explained more in depth.

i think the stats is very heavy for the start, should be more theory first and then finish off with the stats
創建者 Nazmi S•
The content is great. But the style of presentation needs to improve to make it more fun and interesting.
