This was a fantastic course, with a realistically attainable amount of material, and a humble, knowledgable professor whose teaching style makes a normally difficult topic very easy to understand.
Professor Weisbenner is fabulous! He is able to make anyone understand complex investment topics through his delivery and curriculum design. You are missing out not taking Investments from him!

I can only repeat what others have already written. Excellent course for anyone wanting to learn more on this topic. Professor Weisbenner not only knows his subject matter very well but, more importantly, he know how to convey his knowledge to his students in an interesting and thoughtful way combined with a sense of humour. Am looking forward to starting his second course.

Entertaining and thorough at the same time. Although some of the courses I took were following more of an academic style, I don't doublt that this course covered the same subjects with as much or better efficiency. I'm used to the feeling of hard grind while learning difficult subjects - no such feeling during this course. Simply ingenious!

This course was really amazing. I'm a mathematics student and I've done project on Black-Scholes model and in future, I intend to do thesis on CAPM, 3 factor and multi factor model which I learnt from this course. Thanks a lot to Prof. Scott Weisbenner and all others related to this course.

Prof Weisbenner builds the course the same way that you would when constructing a long-lasting structure: preparing the foundation & then building upon it from the foundation up. One can be confident that what is learned will remain in mind. Presentations were very engaging.

Very useful, very detailed.
Best part for me:
- almost no extra reading needed
- perfect length and structure of videos for to/from job trips
- although coarse is focused on US stock market, I found most of the material applicable for MOEX as well

Scott Weisbenner does an extremely good job of consolidating difficult concepts in the easiest way. What's best he is talking about what is relevant today. Had great learning. I would recommend this to everyone. Also, exercises are very useful.
