About the Course

In this course, you will dive into the concepts of rationality and irrationality and understand how they impact our investment decisions and what the consequences can be at the market level. You will first explore the different biases that we, as humans, are subjected to when facing investment decisions and how they may impact the outcomes of these decisions. Moreover, you will see how emotions and ethical concerns such as honesty and trust influence market participants. When they are considered as a group rather than individually, you will discover how rationality and irrationality can drive asset prices to and away from their fair value. Finally, you will be presented with different portfolio construction methodologies and investment styles that make up the landscape of today's portfolio management industry. At key points throughout the course, you will benefit from the practical knowledge of experts from our corporate partner, UBS, in how to build and manage clients' portfolios....

Very good course! Lectures given by professors especially Dr Michel Girardin were excellent and clear. Started this course to increase my knowledge in investment management and I learned quite a lot about investment styles and types and how to use my knowledge and character into making investment decisions. The only upside is that there is no "guided solution" for the open questions, which is a pity.

This course will give you an interesting overview of the cognitive biases faced by investors. It also discusses market efficiency, ethics, and predictability in financial markets. Overall the course was really good. My favourite were the lectures on cognitive biases. However, some of the lectures about market efficiency were very technical and sometimes hard to follow.

I went into this one a bit sceptical if it was worthwhile. In the end I learnt a lot from this course. A lot of great insights into the basics of successful investment strategies. Knowledge of these concepts can prevent people from the common pitfalls that many novice investors make.

Cover plenty of material regarding to the subject.

Although it takes some assumptions that are not unanimous about stock investment, specially about returns from actively managed stocks (it assumes one can beat the market).

Perfect course for building the basics. Was expecting a bit more depth. But, this is the best course to cover the breadth and basics of the field.

Excellent course! The quiz questions were hard. Not because of the concept but because of the way they were worded. Maybe it was intentional.

I would like only 1 question wrong be acceptable as in the first course - I appreciate when the certificate confirms rigor and value.

Sometimes boring and I felt like the quizzes were just worded in a tricky way rather than really assessing learning. Otherwise fine.

More real-life details from the instructors would be useful.

I would also like to see a "recommended textbooks" list.

I LOVE this course.

If you are new in stock market and have no idea about it, then this is the right course for you.

Quite a good course to get an overview of investment. Nothing extraordinary, but still very informative and useful.
