The experience Doctor Shiller has in finance is huge, and the way he transfers the knowledge he has to students who may or may not be finance experts is incredible like you can literally understand every topic he presents during lectures.

This course for me is truly amazing!

The professor has a lot of passion and the course is perfectly structured for online teaching. It is required to take notes, otherwise is very difficult to pass the different tests. I really liked it!

Magnificent course, Robert Shiller shows us in a simple way the importance of financial markets. Extremely grateful that a person with a Nobel Prize can share so much knowledge and show that there is nothing better than helping society.

This is one of the best courses about finance, especially; if you just want to start your career or learning in the finance world. Prof. Shiller talks about not only formulas and numbers, but the deep meaning of finance and its purpose.

It is a good beginner course which introduced me to many new topics. Discussions are held regarding each topic after the lecture making it more interactive and engaging. The quizzes are good, but could be of a higher difficulty level.

Robert Shiller is an excellent professor. He had touched on so many areas of finace. In his closing remarks, he gave the timeline of personal finance as 100 years. He is absolutely right, In 100 years everything changes completely.
