Excellent material to drive and support the discussions introduced in the live sessions. Some materials may need a review (particularly wording), but it does not compromise the overall content at all.

I didn't realise how much I'd learn in this course. So many concepts I've touched on before and thought I knew a bit about, but in hindsight I really didn't understand, until I completed this course.

Professor Almeida provides a lot of real-world examples and information to his courses. The videos are long and thorough, but provide a foundation for investments. He prepares you for more developed topics moving forward.

Interesting information, but the prof goes really fast through examples and doesn't show the actual math...this isn't really helpful for folks that are new to finance.

Risk Management section felt very rushed - would have appreciated a slower pace and more detailed description for such a complicated topic - especially Hedging!

Course contains some difficult concepts. The main benefit is the honors assignments and professor's explanations, which help students understand these topics.
