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.
por Austin R•
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.
por Abhishek S•
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.

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

I would appreciate if they incorporate more examples to explain and make things easier.

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