The jump in Python programming was not handled well - it was far too complex and an order of magnitude more complex than anything that had come before. I enjoyed the theory, but feel lost with the Python component. A 12 minute lab session with a Princeton grad student was not nearly enough to grasp the material. Bring back Vijay who is excellent in teaching Python!

Personally, this is the BEST online course I have ever seen. For students with basic knowledge in machine learning and finance, this can help them improve a lot, especially helping them to combine these two things. In addition, the viewpoint of Professor John Mulvey is sharp and indicate directions for applying ML in investment management courses. Best course ever.

John part is really confusing and not well explained. his slides and very high level and labs are very low level with basically no explanation. The rest of the course is fine.

It was a terrible experience taking this course. Despite the two first courses, this one is disappointing! the ML instructor does not offer any useful material and all of the ML lectures contain ambiguous and useless material. The worst part is the quizzes. the multiple choices include ambiguous answers and that you should choose more than one and the ridiculous part is that either you would get the full mark or nothing! even if you choose some choices correctly and you never know what was your mistakenly chosen choice! I've tried the week 2 quiz for 9 times and have not been yet successful to pass it.
It's overwhelmingly complicated and unclear.
I didn't expect such a terrible course from EDHEC Business School and Coursera!

Well, that was disappointing. What was the point bringing Princeton into this? Looks like edhec does not have in house ml experience. I did not find this course, exercises and labs to be practical at all. As another commentator said bring back Vijay!

I learned about how can be used the machine learning in asset management, but to much theory and nothing practical. We received the lab done, and could not understand how implement. I missed the lab of the first two courses.

Good concepts to touch but lack on coding in granulality example. But overall, I'm get a good example how to implement machine learning technique to finance perspective.

I have been more and more frustrated with the course that became less and less explanatory, but more and more descriptive. I still find the topics very interesting, and the first two MOOCs were really amazing, but I find this one much less clear and giving us much less understanding of the coding part. What would be really great would be to get a full description of what the code does, at least much more detailed than at present. As an example, no code was even provided for PCA and graphical networks, that's quite disappointing.

I liked the content, but missed the practical application like in the previous courses.

The course feels chaotic and unplanned, unlike the previous two courses in the series. This course glosses over on some of the important technical details, while repeats too much basic or non-technical information. It also seems the course outsources the teaching to PhD students and readings, which causes further inconsistency.

This course is clearly of lower quality than the previous two courses of the Investment Management with Python and Machine Learning Specialization. Quiz is too ambiguous and very painful to pass.

First about me - I been deeply involved in data science, and machine learning and trade on the financial markets. So, in addition to solid academic credentials, I have a real life practical experience. I took this course to check if there were some additional skills I could learn.
I was sorely disappointed. This is a completely useless course.
The first two courses in this specialization were amazing. This has been the worst organized and least practical course. As other reviews have pointed out, academic research on regime filtering was pandered out as machine learning in finance. I was expecting to learn practical instances of using supervised, unsupervised, deep learning used in finance. There was nothing of this sort.
I have never seen Q-Q plots being used in investment/hedge funds - we talk about annualized returns, standard deviation, Sharpe ratio, and drawdowns. These statistical markers were used by Vijay in the first two courses. Not here.
This course needs to be rebuild from scratch - and Vijay needs to be brought back in for real practical application of ML in financial services.

Honestly, for this course, in the present state of work in progress, I can't give more than 1 star. Not well-constructed course, no right balance between theory and lab sessions. Theory on Machine Learning is on basic high-level concepts. Even the visual format of the lecture videos is irritating. Lab sessions are not always present, or not explained in a detailed manner, which is really a problem.
Stars are also missing because of a few frustrating quizzes and because of the lack of (quick/relevant) responses or answers of the moderators in the forum.
Please rework this course, with the high-quality other courses of this specialisation as example; please also take also the remarks of the students in the forum into consideration.

1) poor explanations, few examples, bad audio quality... I was about to give up because of this 3rd course...

Worst course in the all specialization! Bad lectures, and absolutely bad grading system.

Very bad. Previous 2 courses was amazing, but this is a strange.
