TOP REVIEWS FROM PORTFOLIO AND RISK MANAGEMENT
Thoroughly enjoyed the course. Lecturers were clear and easy to understand. I feel this course would be a great aid for anyone pursuing a career in financial industries.
Most part of the courses were quite good, excepted the part on currency risk where i thought it was abit too technical, too much formulas for the currency lectures
Great learning in this course, however the currency risk portion could have been explained in more detail and with more patience. It was a hard topic to grasp. But, overall a very good course.
The great Modern Portfolio Theory! If you are into portfolio investment, this course is a must for you. You can learn how to get a lunch almost free...
