Global Financial Markets and Instruments is a MUST. Excellent instruction! I truly appreciate the opportunity to receive this course from such a prestigious University - Rice University.
Good and succinct introduction to financial markets and instruments. Clear valuation formulas and intuitive explanation of treatment of cash-flows to define future and present values.

I like that the course material is divided up such that someone who is busy with a day job can also find time to listen to the lectures and do the quizzes. Also like that the course gets you familiar with the way the financial market is organized and helps one get familiar with the terms. However, I personally felt there was insufficient coverage on the math and many of the quiz questions were not at all easy to understand the terms and apply the formulas. There need to be more examples of such problems so that there is more familiarity with the math especially for those completely new to this field.

The Instructor is very very energetic and creates focus, but only reason for a 4 star is that the questions asked are much more harder than what taught in the lectures and sometimes out of what was taught in the lecture, so it felt pretty hard to solve the practice questions. I'm sorry to say but I had to take help from internet for understanding some aspects of course because the instructor did'nt teach about that but was given in the questions.

Good introductory course! It gives an overview of the global financial market-as the course name suggests. The math problems are a bit hard though. Improvement can be made for the pop up quiz during the lecture--it suddenly cut the lecture; thus disrupting my concentration. It think it needs to be properly placed during the lecture so as to help in reviewing the lesson, not disrupt the student's focus.

The course was very informative. The material is well summarized for a beginner or as a fresher course. However I wish the quiz module was more user friendly. Sometimes it got questions wrong because it did not recognize a number format when it was not specified.
Also if its possible can old articles be added in PDF. Some links didn't work for nonsubscriber.

Personally I enjoyed getting to "sit in class" again. The lecturer made things pretty clear cut as well. Not 5 stars because I believe there are some small errors for the quizzes, especially when some answers are correct but registered as an error due to decimal places or having and extra symbol like %.
For those who are determined to learn, you'll do fine.

This course was very helpful for me as a complete newbie to the subject, it provided me with an impulse to learn more. I would rate it at full 5 stars if learning videos were more concrete and went into more detail as I want to deeply understand the subject I'm studying in a complex manner and not only in definitions and limited applications.

The content is good. Mathematical problems should be completed in their entirety. The discussion board needs to be organized according to the questions being asked. Overall, the videos need to be updated based on student comments. Dr. O is very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about her subject.

Great Course which provides students with a strong option for entering the financial planning field, taking less time than a extensive course and allowing students to study on their own time, without having to make major sacrifices in their professional or personal lives.
