The course is quite comprehensive and covers the fundamentals of financial markets in a manner that makes the subject instantly interesting and engenders curiosity among the students to learn further.
Professor Vidya Nathan had delivered the training in simplistic manner which helps to understand the 5 modules and the contents.\n\nMay be if some data visualisation or hands on would further enhance
This course gives us a brief idea about the terms and their impact but i think a few things are a bit rushed. A bit of time should be devoted on topics for a better understanding as the trends and the effect a particular factor has on stocks,bonds or currency was sometimes difficult to grasp on (since I am just a beginner)

Topics covered are wide and good for the intended learning. A little more visuals of everything that was taught would have helped to understand things even better. eg: when talking about yield curve, a picture of yield curve to show how the trends are with any of the country would have helped to corelate.

ISB is an institution based in India and participant choose such course to learn financial markets in terms of Indian context. In this course, all references are from US markets / perspective and few of which are not relevant to India. We would like to have flavor of India in this course.

It's a fine course but I think that it lacks some practical examples and also lack of presentation also makes it less interesting, even though the professor delivered the facts and information amusingly but still the videos can be updated and they should be edited better.

It was a pretty good introductory course but really really lacked some animations of pictorial references.Which just does'nt help you visualize or make it easier to understand we have to search the topics online to get in depth knowledge about the topics.
por Ankit K M•
Well, explanations were very good but extremely slow and very dry- in the sense there were little to no diagrams, charts etc. First time learners like me get confused many many times especially considering the fact that I'm from non-financial background.

A course containing a width of topics.
Just that for a beginner level course, it was a bit difficult to comprehend. Also, the course was oriented towards the US financial market, while I was hoping it to be focussed towards the Indian context.

i understand this as an introduction course. But i would've preferred a deep understanding i.e implying the affects of various economic indicators and why one changes when the there is a change in the other. Otherwise it was informative.
por Kshitiz S•
Quite okay, can improve on video bloopers and professionalism. Would've liked to see some quantitative aspects of the topics taught or some examples showcasing whatever theories the instructor was teaching us.
por Nimesh G•
The course surely is not an introduction to financial markets. Being from non financial background i had to consult with financial literates to know what the terms were.
por Daniel E•
Maybe I might have this opinion because it is not my core field but the coursework and presentation was quite boring that's why it took me time to complete it.

El curso no tiene ningún soporte adicional como gráficos o diagramas en las presentaciones o textos PDF o diapositivas para poder reforzar lo aprendido.

this course can be made more productive by a good presentation , better communication skill of the teacher and my adding summary in every weak video
por Nipun S•
Introduces a very good breadth of topics. However, it needs a bit more depth and graphical explanations (e.g. with the use of actual charts)
por Jorge A B•
The questions are too trivial and poorly placed.
The lecturer is good, but more editing is needed, specially towards the end of the course.
por Aivan D P•
Utilize the fact that it is a video lecture. Incorporate visual aids in the discussion for the students to further understand the topics.
por Franco V•
Poor in example and and I prefer with more iteration and not only spoken inf front, whci is the different with reading a book?
por Siddhant M•
The music at the start and at the end is quite irritating to ears. Please don't use any kind of music again
por Kudzai T•
Very informative now I understand all the basics not just on the money markets but the economy as a whole
por Dimitrios T•
good content. although there were some mistakes along the way but overall good subject and good teacher
por Amol G•
Good content.Beginner level course. The video editing is really poor leading to a bad experience.
por Tanya G•
it should be more comprehensive and there are errors in between the videos. It needs improvement
por Manikandan C•
The instructor has rushed on many topics very quickly making it somewhat difficult to learn
por Ankam H T•
The explanation of Bond Markets was very confusing, otherwise, it is a very good course.
por Ryden T J R•
I think there are better learning resources on the financial market here in Coursera.
