The professor and TA were outstanding, the lectures and explanations were clear, and the assignments were excellent. I'd only desire to see a little more mathematical rigor, but that's probably just my thing.

Decent overall introduction to the world of Finance! The lecturer presents the content with passion and expertise, btw I would recommend watching the lectures at 1.25x speed due to him talking rather slowly.

A great course given by a great professor, it deserves to be learned by everyone who doesn't learn finance before to have an initial point of view and some brief understanding of the global financial market.

The course is rich in content and you can learn a lot. The professor's speech is also very clear, and the speed of speech is not very fast, so students who are not native English speakers can understand it.
