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.

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.
par Jacob V•
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
par Gustavo A•
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.
par Ardian F•
This course has rich theoretical and practical material if you want to study about risk and reward analysis.
Recommended for aspiring young finance or business analyst!
par Anna F D•
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.

The professors are amazing. I could grasp all the concepts easily because of the good pace maintained by the professors. Thank you so much for this course!

The course was what I expected it to be. I was desperately looking for enlightenment in model risk and realities which was well delivered in the course.

A well-structured and practice-oriented course with a few useful practical tips about Excel-based business models focusing on risk and reward aspects.

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.
par Teuku N Z•
The course was very helpful as it gives a balanced theoretical and practical understanding in dealing with risk and uncertainties.
By far the best course of "business & financial modeling". Getting my respect back after losing it in the "spreadsheets & models"
