Sobre o curso

In this course, you’ll learn the foundational theories behind robo-advising, crowdfunding, and marketplace lending, and how to apply these theories to optimize your investments. Professor David Musto of the Wharton School has designed this course to help you gain a practical understanding of the theoretical frameworks of Modern Portfolio Theory and Financial Technology. You’ll learn how to apply the ideas behind robo-advising and crowdfunding to better assess and leverage a more optimized portfolio while managing risks. You’ll also explore the current consumer credit landscape and learn how to utilize financial technologies in your business. You’ll analyze real-life examples by studying the cases of Square and CommonBond. By the end of this course, you’ll have honed your skills in calculating risks and returns in robo-advising and crowdfunding, and be able to assess the value of marketplace lending to achieve better returns on your investments. No prerequisites are required for this course, although "Fintech: Foundations, Payments, and Regulations" and "Cryptocurrency and Blockchain: An Introduction to Digital Currencies" from Wharton's Fintech Specialization are recommended....

Very informative course, with good examples. I particularly enjoyed the video of the Square executive. I just wish David Mutso's signature was somewhat legible on the course certificate.

Prof Musto is a great instructor. Really enjoyed his interesting examples and engaging method of teaching. I liked the fact that he focused on concepts more than data and key terms.

I would've liked more practical cases like the ones in the Week 4, but in the whole specialization.

A fine conceptual course to provide a helicopter view of the on-going disruption and future prospects of the financial market via financial technology. Professor David Musto has lucidly designed Week 1 to 3, describing robo-advising, lending, crowdfunding and investing (for-profit as well as social) backed by summarized theory and mathematical background- focusing more on it's application rather than dwelling on unnecessary complications. Quizzes were quite fun since they weren't just based on what was on the slide, but also on the concepts taught. Lastly, the 2 case studies on FinTech companies (Square and CommonBond) provided an exposure to the practical applications of financial, their impact and the opportunities it can tap in future. Do take this course to experience the thrill of the FinTech roller coaster and the enormous potential it has in its store.

Excellent course with detailed knowledge explained in a easy way, so any lay man can understand. I really enjoyed the course and learnt a lot of economics stuffs though i'm not from pure economics background. The reason i give 4 star is the course could have added lectures on ICOs which is a hot topic along with Crowdfunding lectures.
