It was a really nice experience. I learned many things about finance and portfolio management that I could not have learned in a simpler way.

I liked the course, but I feel the more complex formulas presented in week 2 and week 3 could have had more practical examples.

Un curso muy bueno, pero con una matemática muy compleja. Me resultó sumamente difícil, a diferencia de los anteriores. Creo que se debería explicar un poco más detalladamente la parte matemática para aplicar a la resolución de problemas.
