A little too theoretical and the subjects are not easy to follow.
It should have more step by step and deep explanation (math stuff).
The interest rates vs bonds are difficult for begginers, it should be transmitted in different ways.

I learn some interesting things. The course gets better for week 3-4. However, the course could use better the Coursera format and strenght.
The certified certificate is pricy compared to other courses.
In overall it’s good.

just a normal online course, the instructors are just reciting their ppt and prepared materials. Pretty boring.

Great subjects and some great teachers. But every now and then I missed some proper explanations.
Further, reverences to articles and books to better understand the subjects were missing as well.

Good basic understanding. However the professors can be a bit more professional, sometimes it feels like Im a high school student again, the way they explain things.

Very helpful for people who are new to the field. However, I do wish many of the concepts were explained more clearly; often new concepts are introduced and no clear definition is given.

Some very good explanations, especially by Michel Girardin. Some other courses lack explanations.

This is a very basic course on financial markets and adresses various topics in a relatively vague way. It is a good introduction if you have not much experience with finance and economincs, but on the other hand, sometimes it treats some topics as if the student already has previous knwoledge on them.

This course is too elementary. U of G is considered to be a top university in the world, I am expecting an advanced course, at least teach us some asset pricing theories, such as APT, thanks.

The course is nice, but I was under the impression that this course is for beginners, while the lecturers did not explain the terms they used clearly. for example i finished the course and passed it without understanding what is the duration of the bond!! practically speaking, I used to learn the terms from the lecturers and google them to understand and the website investopedia was my main help in this matter. I also think practical examples might be useful in this matter

The content is badly organized and the lessons poorly focused.

I think this course is not for someone beginner on finance, because many fundamental topics are missed like :
*what are Economic indicators and the business cycle (before using chart with GDP and talk about emerging/developped country, it should explain how to mesure economic of a country)
*difference between real, nominal interest
*more explications about : inflation, stagnation, recession...
before passing any quize, it's should be more exercices for practice.
I noticed that quizs, keep the same questions, when you try to retake the quiz

Very disappointed. The whole course lacked a grasp on reality. Too much general theories that could be read from any book or the internet. Too much focus on mathematical equations and in general, I wouldn't say this course actually gives a proper overview of financial markets. It will most likely leave the attendees confused, rather than educated. Mr. Michel Girardin was the highlight of the course, but he was pretty much the only good thing in this course and only because of his good teaching techniques.
