TOP REVIEWS FROM INTRODUCTION TO FINANCIAL MARKETS
It is good but it would have been even better if taught like for the people who are completely new to finance, you know, explaning everything in layman terms. The instructor tried to do that, I agree.
The course is quite comprehensive and covers the fundamentals of financial markets in a manner that makes the subject instantly interesting and engenders curiosity among the students to learn further.
Professor Vidya Nathan had delivered the training in simplistic manner which helps to understand the 5 modules and the contents. May be if some data visualisation or hands on would further enhance
An excellent course for an introduction to Financial Markets. Would definitely recommend it for beginners as it covers a good array of concepts and techniques in a relatively short duration.
