I think that this particular course could have a bit deeper dive into the topic, felt more like a general overview compared to previous courses in the specialization.
A really good course that I would certainly recommend. The only thing that let it down was that some of the solutions to the final quiz were incorrect and led to some frustration on the forum!
An excellent course combining psychology and behavioral biases with finance. An eye-opener for students and managers relying exclusively on quantitative techniques to solve finance problems.
Excellent course, unfortunately ruined by the lack of support from mentoring or teaching staff. Also getting a peer review assigned is very difficult, probably due to shortage of students.
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.
Good and succinct introduction to financial markets and instruments. Clear valuation formulas and intuitive explanation of treatment of cash-flows to define future and present values.
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.
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.
