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.

This course is a real eye opener for future opportunities in my home country. I am from the IT domain venturing into FinTech. Thanks to U Penn for their structured and curated specialisation certificate offerings.

The course dives into the different ways of obtaining and providing funding in today's financial scene, it not only provides an overview but also addresses the challenges in this space.

Covers the breadth of the emerging fintech industry well, but specific details or references to algorithms and techniques used in each of these sectors would have been interesting.

Decent overview of the market, but still suffering from a very US-centric approach which disregards the importance of non-student loans in non-US lending

Useful knowledge for beginners, who start to study about finance

The teaching skills of the lecturer is not quite good.

All the Student Loans part is too American and irrelevant for non and never U.S, citizens.

Although the course provides good insights, however it does not deep delve into the actual outline mentioned, it talks more about the traditional finance concepts and then concluded like "Robo advising exists and might be able to do say XYZ' instead of saying what its actually doing and how can it be capable of expanding more.

Even for the case studies part, Square's experience was short, crisp and more insightful while commonbond's case is more descriptive with less insights and more generic stuff which is ideally of no use.

this course gives me a overall knowledge on lending and other modern lending alternatives. But it is so few case study and visibility to show how the flow work. It will be easy to catch up and attactive.

Pprofessor was hard to follow with all the "ok" and fumbled words. Tried reading along and it reads the same as he spoke. This was hard to watch therefore turned into me taking quiz multiple times

The tone of voice and intonation of the teacher makes the course a bit boring or lose interest, I resorted to reading the slides to learn and present the exams

The content of the course is good. However, the professor explains the same is not very pointed - confusing and long story telling.

Generally good. The best parts are the two case studies in week4, they provided good insights into the industry.

US centric course, very biased (without a word of warning that it is a non global one).
