One of the things that I didn't like is that I couldn't complete the course because, without purchasing the course, I didn't have access to the assignments / quizzes. But the content is good and the Geneva teachers are nice (specially Michel!). Also, some USB guest lectures are not adequate for this type of course, which is for beginners. Sometimes the guest lectures are not even related to the content of the modules where they are presented.

The material covered is fine. But it's done at warp speed and with no information on how to compute the complex mathematical formulas that are required. The glitches in the segment non-grades quizzes is annoying. You can't have the opposing answers both being correct. This gets worse as the class goes on. It really needs to be fixed. As well, the materials are about 5-6 years old. It's time for an update.

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.

I find this course is very challenging as I never work for a bank. After each lecture it is necessary to find extra material to read and study, in order to pass each "test". Overall, I am satisfied. After this course, I am able to read financial news with a better understanding of the situation.
par Bhupendra M•
The course is very well designed and concepts are very well explained. I have no knowledge of commerce but can still understand the terminology used. I feel there is still room for improvement on the details on some topics which can help beginners to understand it better.
par Chantelle D S•
Michel lectures very vividly and keeps it interesting, however there seems to be so many assumptions towards students, too much assumed knowledge for someone who has zero knowledge in finance (like me)...still leaves me with quite a lot of unanswered questions.
par AGAM D•
A really helpful course, covering a wide range of topics. However, A more in-depth detailed explanation of the principles and theories, their derivations and applications, could've helped in providing a deeper understanding of them.
par Danilo A E•
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.
par Loic R•
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.
par Moreno C•
The course is comprehensive and the instructors have good teaching skills.
The level is introductory.
I would recommend this course to beginners with limited previous exposure to investment management.
par L.F.G. K•
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.
par Wade P•
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.
par Shubhneet S•
Although the course was very helpful but I, being from a mechanical engineering background, thought that some concepts could have been simplified further for better understanding.
par Kasper M•
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.
par Mathieu M•
cours très complet couvrant la plupart des concepts à connaître pour mieux comprendre les markets outlooks. Mais intervenants parfois inégaux.
just a normal online course, the instructors are just reciting their ppt and prepared materials. Pretty boring.
par Amrit M•
Michel gets 5 stars; inspiring and very easy to follow. The rest of the teachers are quite abysmal.
par Barbara G•
Some very good explanations, especially by Michel Girardin. Some other courses lack explanations.
par DOLLY K S•
This course really helped me develop my knowledge on financial markets shaping my fundamentals.
par Aakash G•
Quizzes and assignments needed to give a practical feel to course
par Aleksandr B•
More written assignments and real world examples would be helpful
par Suhib D•
It's difficult to understand for those who didn't study finance
par Sebastian M•
I expected more. I hope the next levels are better designed.
par MIR F•
THE COURSE WAS REALLY HELPFUL FOR MY FINANCIAL KNOWLEDGE
