TOP REVIEWS FROM BIASES AND PORTFOLIO SELECTION
An excellent course combining psychology and behavioral biases with finance. An eye-opener for students and managers relying exclusively on quantitative techniques to solve finance problems.
Extremely interesting but could be more detailed showing more specific data and examples with downloadable spreadsheets.
Excellent course material Thoroughly enjoyed the course
For me, it is an excellent course. Understanding some concepts of biases and behavior when making portfolio decisions is a good addition to knowledge when making investment decisions. Tks Dr. O
