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.
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.

It's really good since it combines portfolio theory with practice during the lab sessions. I would just like some more practical ecercises with the answers in order to get confident with the lab sessions.

I think it gives you an excellent introduction for the portfolio analysis and improvement of your programming skills. However, you might have a solid knowledge of some mathematical concepts.

The course is great, I enjoyed very detailed Python labs, they taught me a lot. But almost no support from the staff in the forums. If you don't understand something, you are on your own.

There is a tremendous amount of material to be learned in this course and it is quite challenging material but for anyone interested in this topic I think the instruction is excellent.
Very useful course that covered some simple investment strategies and taught you to implement it using python. Recommended to those who want to enter the quantitative investment world.

I am grateful for bọth EDHEC and coursera help and supports. After finishing this course, I am now able to write some codes and I also know how to build a nice portfolio for myself.

The course is extremely useful. I understand more the investment strategy. I'm able to use python for data process. It's really convenient as compared to excel in simulation.

I found this course to be a great mix of programming and investment management principles. Both instructors did a good job of making the subject matter accessible.

Great course. Professors explain very good. You will learn new things about python coding and definetly about basic portfolio construction and how to enhace it.

Really challenging and informative course. Assignments are a little bit frustrating and time-consuming offering a lot of learning opportunities.

This course is not at all an Introductory course. It is quite advanced and requires a decent level of commitment to keep up
A bit quick in the later part, but overall gives me the knowledge of finance theory and hand-on experience in coding.

A very beginner friendly course with more a lot of focus on financial concepts and how to execute them using Python

it would be great if this course could be splitted to 6 or 7 weeks; the session of each week is too long now

Very interesting course on portfolio construction with enthusiastic and passion-driven teachers.

By Igor R•
Very informative, though a bit of a mismatch between labs and lectures.
