Sobre o curso

Useful quantitative models help you to make informed decisions both in situations in which the factors affecting your decision are clear, as well as in situations in which some important factors are not clear at all. In this course, you can learn how to create quantitative models to reflect complex realities, and how to include in your model elements of risk and uncertainty. You’ll also learn the methods for creating predictive models for identifying optimal choices; and how those choices change in response to changes in the model’s assumptions. You’ll also learn the basics of the measurement and management of risk. By the end of this course, you’ll be able to build your own models with your own data, so that you can begin making data-informed decisions. You’ll also be prepared for the next course in the Specialization....

covers good amount of material and exactly what is in the outline, presented with enough detail to follow. Good walk-through of the spreadsheets helps understanding, easy to follow along and practice.

Material was very well presented. Week 3 was challenging, but taking time to print out the slides, work through them rigorously proved very helpful. I found all sections very, very informative.

A very good and practical course, especially if you have some basic knowledge in statistics. Make sure to take your time and try out the excel examples to deepen your understanding.

Absolute gold. This course taught me to use the complex concepts I knew in excel. This was a challenging and interesting course and definitely useful for people who work in finance.

One of the most useful courses I've taken to date. This course is what the Spreadsheets and Models course should have been. Only complaint was week 3 was unnecessarily lengthy.

Super clear and super helpful. Nothing otherworldly however I learned new ways of doing data analysis, and it made me dig more into the potential of Excel for scenario analysis.

I thought that this course was tremendously helpful, as it really drove home how to execute simulations which is something that I had considered but not really utilized before.

I thoroughly enjoyed this course. I not only learned a lot in terms of ability to use Excel and am now better equipped to approach data in certain (and uncertain) situations

Great examples, the best course of the specialization so far.

Week 3 was a little bit slow. I think it was going through some theory that was already covered by course 1.

Very good course content. Was looking to apply to non-financial (engineering) modeling. There are similarities and may be able to use the same methodologies to simulate

This course was very insightful. It's a great refresher course if you have a finance background. It's also beginner-friendly if you do not have finance background.

This surely was the best course, amongst the last 3. The instructors were great, went in-depth and the tests also had some standard.

Well taught. Interesting for the novice at least. Even for the one with experience in modeling and statistics but in another field.
