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.

The course explains some basic concepts regarding financial markets. The discussion part is very interesting, but not so much for the calculation part.
Some of the calculations are pretty hard to perform, and it takes quite a jump from the lecture to solving the practise problems. A lot of the in-class whether-you-are-dreaming quizzes are pretty disturbing. The course can improve by adding more discussions and lessen the calculation part (or probably teach us how to use financial calculator)

The material is very well organized, compacted, digested. That's great. My big concern has been the lack of support in the forums. That's fundamental to me and I didn't get almost any answers to my questions neither from instructors nor others. Also would be great if the accompanying notes to the videos have the complete examples. Also a little more detail on types of order details would be very useful. Overall I'm satisfied with the course and gonna keep with the rest of the series.

The course material was extensive. Numbers are not my deal, so the 3 was more my limited knowledge than the content of the course and the instructor. I still struggle with numbers and word problems. But i was satisfied with the course material and the presentation of the materials.

Most of the formulas presented are either inaccurate or not sufficiently described. The general framework is good, but formulas should be clearer and accurate. I had to look into other online materials to get better explanation. This should not be so.

A good overall view of the markets and the investible world. It would get 5 stars if there was a broader analysis of different asset classes (i.e. annuity vs annuity due, etc...) and the accompanying notes were more detailed.

The quizzes included either pretty difficult math questions or pretty simple definition questions. I have gained a high level understanding of the various methods of investment from this course.

En general el curso me ha resultado util y puedo decir que cuento con un buen acercamiento a los temas. Pareciera faltarle profundidad en algunos contenidos.

Course was good but I think the teacher Dr.O wasn't convinving at all. I find it really difficult in understanding her lectures.

Many errors in notes, a little bit wasting of time to review. More formulas will be better to understand

Video-embedded quiz lack solutions.
Some quiz are not well clearly stated.
