TOP REVIEWS FROM PORTFOLIO SELECTION AND RISK MANAGEMENT
I think Excel should be used to teach so that more clarification should be there with tools
I really enjoyed this course. Sometimes it required a lot of discipline to analyse investigate, but at the end I've learn a lot.
Professor is great and professional. But the contents in week 2 are too many, I think it could be better they are divided into two-week studying.
This was a tough course and I actually moved to another schedule. I think a sixth week on using excel to solve problems would have been worthwhile.
