A very good introduction course to python programming and it has a perfect combination with statistics, which makes financial analysis more interesting and refresh my mind on it, thanks.
Very clear explaining of the significant aspects when structuring a financial analysis, applicable in many forms of data if you don't want to make predictions only for the stock market.
Week 4 could have been taught in more constructive manner like the previous 3 weeks' content. Otherwise, it's a great combination of Finance, Statistics, and Python.

Kinda complicated on the statistics front if you're a beginner like me but I appreciate the knowledge I gained on how to handle financial data using python.

Is a good course for begginers in python, but you should really have a background in investment finance and stadistics if you want to take advantage of it.
By Alinur S•
The course is excellent because of its content, however, there were not enough practical tasks to develop an understanding of the topic deeper. Thank You!

Good introduction to Python. Need aforelearnt competencies in statistics. Course goes a bit too fast concerning the translation of statistiques to python
By Taouli O•
It was an interresting course which helped me to discover statistics and financial word and to learn how to use python to deploy analysis of the markets
By Manik H•
There should be 2 programming assignments as well. That will make the course more challenging and difficult to pass by just skimming through videos

Muy buen curso sin embargo tienes que tener un poco de conociemiento de python ya que con el transcurso del curso el enfoque es más en estadística.
By Aditya B•
Some statistical concepts required more explanation than provided. Often I had to learn about the concepts myself. Otherwise, it's a great course.
By Jack W E•
I thought this offered a very valuable introduction in to the use of Pandas within Python, with work through notebooks and examples in the videos.
By Karthikeyan T•
The course gave food insigts on Statistics mainly with little less weightage on Python. Overall a decent start for financial analysis with Python
By Anushka C•
Overall the course is good but the python codes used are not explained properly. So for python beginners like me, it was difficult to understand.
By Chiu S W T•
The content of the program is very useful although some question in the quiz are needed to be updated. I have learnt a lot! Thank you very much!
By Nicolo d G•
Relatively easy course that has taught me a number of useful panda tricks. Notebooks are used just for demonstration and not very challenging.
By Amelia D P A•
it is a good course, statistically detailed explanation, discussion forums are also very helpful when I have difficulty undergoing the course
By David M•
Great for an intro / refresher in statistics and forecasting fundamentals. Would recommend having some Python knowledge before registering.

Professor can do hands simultaneously with lecture then it will be more beneficial and easy to understand instead of explaining from slides
By vineet b•
A decent beginners guide to financial analytics.
Don't expect much as this is more like a foundation course for more in depth complex once.
By Kuanzhi L•
It is a good start for me to pick up more Python techniques for Financial Analysis. Than you Prof.Wan and Coursera, also my school ESSEC.
By Vijay D•
It is course to learn the linear regression along with stock market basic information and strategy. Well organised and simple takeaways.
By Luis M•
Very good content and excellent notebooks! Didactics (concepts, their relation with each other and applications) could somehow improve.
By Phi L B•
Very interesting, but some concepts went too fast. It is also very difficult to learn how to code, other than copy-pasting the lines.
By Sebastian C•
Great course. Learned Python and Statistical Analysis. This course could add more content as I have enjoyed the learning process.
By Ramazan A•
Background required, the course often provides no additional/explaining information about technical details, need to use google)
By Francesco P S•
Overall nice course. Sometimes the instructor skips some logical steps. It would also be nicer to see the coding happening live.
