Impressive, professional, and absolutely empowering. And may I admire how Professor Shiller somehow exudes a sense of familiarity and emotionally connects to someone behind a screen on the other side of the globe like me! One would yearn attending one of his lectures face-to-face.

It was really very satisfying, since it not only allowed me to open my mind to many new concepts and instruments, but also, unlike other financial courses, it allowed me to learn about the sense of social responsibility, using finance and philanthropy as a investment philosophy.

This course is a great way to learn the fundamental elements of financial markets, using mostly the United States as a reference. Besides, Mr. Shiller and his teaching assistant provide valuable insights on the course. Therefore, I highly recommend this Financial Markets course.

I took this class because I have no background in finance and wanted a good introduction. This class is a solid introduction to the subject. Prof. Shiller's manner of explaining things and providing historical context on important financial concepts will remain with me forever.

It was an excellent overview of financial markets for all kinds of assets. The best part of the course is that there were lots if examples and it was delivered in a very nuanced way. The teacher did not pass judgement on most of the things making students think for themselves.

Me pareció un excelente curso en el que pude comprender la normativa internacional, conocer entidades financieras de los EE.UU, conocer el mercado de derivados y saber las ventajas que posee cada producto financiero, como recompensar las pérdidas con las opciones financieras.

It was a big challenge but alsoa greatful financial experience. I really got a pounch of knowledge about Financial Markets that I never knew before. I recommend it very much. After this course I think, they must teach Fianancial Markets at school as a very important subject.

Beginner friendly course and perfect for anyone seeking fundamental knowledge of Financial Markets. The best part about this course are the snippets of discussions, salons & chalk talks and the emphasis on social and behavioural aspects of Finance rather than general theory.

Having the historical background, combined with the evolution through the years gave a complete view. A variety of relative topics was covered while keeping the course interesting. A very well-constructed course and an amazing professor. Everyone can gain a lot through this.
