I am self taught in Python and have an industry background in Finance. This course was a good connector/provided additional insight on using Python to process portfolio performance and data analysis.
Awesome Course, Great instructors that give a nice balance of theory and practice, the practice is very hands-on and will help you understand the theory and give you useful tools from the first week.

Amazing course! The instructors are very nice.
The flow of the course which is a concept video followed by a Practical Lab Session building on that concept is really good!

Very good course to get started with Python. I loved the fact that instructor was debugging "live" during the lab sessions, that's very helpful for a Python beginner.

I learned more than expected. Excellent guidance trough the course, level of complexity according to a medium python programmer, and intermediate financial knowledge
By Arthur D B•
Really good course. It was a little bit difficult at the beginning since I did not have any knowledge in Portfolio Construction but with determination you can do it.

Excellent course for understanding the basics of investment. However, you do need some calculus and python programming background for the course to be effective.

amazing course. I never thought diversification has its limits in the way you described. But I did observe it in real life. this is an exceptional course.

It was a decent course. Went deeper than I expected so I would not say that it is really for beginners. Python labs were interesting and really useful.

Pretty great course. Bit hard to finish towards the end. Both profs were great, however towards the end both of them were not on the exact same track.

The inclusion of python coding makes this a valuable and practical course. I particularly liked Vijay's real time coding approach.
