Interesting information and doesn't take long to finish. Good to get a basic overview about AI, Real Estate Technology and InsurTech.
Very informative and an excellent overview of AI, InsurTech, Real Estate and how FinTec is changing and creating more opportunities.

A good course to get insights into innovations and disruptions made by FinTech in different financial market areas such as insurance and real estate by integrating emerging technologies of AI and/or Machine Learning. The course outlines a bird's-eye view into the reality and prospects of increasing technological impacts on the financial industry- what is exactly happening, what has been achieved, what can be achieved and what is overhyped. Quizzes are fun since they are mostly based on concepts and their meaning instead of just a slide-copy-paste scenario which really help in planting the fundamentals in your mind to build upon as per your interests. Finally, the case studies (of FinTech pioneers- Vanguard and Wealthfront) are really intriguing, informative and potentially motivating- compels one to think about the ways in which the world in perceiving and incentivizing innovation and disruption.

Great course to get awareness around the application of AI in fintech, insuretech and RE tech streams. Lot of new information and research topics based on US markets are articulated well part of this program.
Highly recommendable to consultants who want to gain the knowledge around emerging areas.

I thoroughly enjoyed the short videos and condensed information. The slides were concise and informative. I discovered that I'm not as interested in real estate technology, but fascinated by InsurTech and AI.

This course provides highlevel view and the business cases of the AI and other technologies in the FinTech and is a highly recommended course to understand the current scenarios and future business usecases.

Great course for an overarching overview into the world of Fintech, Blockchain and allied services. A good diving board to then dive deeper into any one or more of the specific subjects that are introduced.
This course gives an oversight of the various kinds of Financial Technology and how its being deployed by various firms in different areas of the financial industry

Interesting development about the real estate

It was a good overview but too much emphasis on market analysis and invested funds, rather than explanation of a the technology. Also, this market has changed and the course should be updated with more current information.

One of the videos was broken with text running over the professor. Some data are convincing but they don't really add to the understanding of the mechanics consisting knowledge. Also they are gradually outdated.
By Zino W•
Professor speaks in perfect speed to explain models/theories/examples
More interaction with the student would be beneficial
By Philip P•
Felt a little bit "thin" and repetitive, however does give a very high level overview of the topic
By Dinh V B•
Good case studies, but the content is still so general.
By William H•
The material is a little scant in this course.
By Antti K•
I expected this to go more into detail on the types of technology, how they're applied. It was more market focused, lots of numbers about the market size and number of investments in InsurTech and RE Tech (numbers that in 2020 are also outdated). As a result, the quizzes also had too much focus on generally useless number memorization. It also felt like a list of tech companies and a brief description of their business and funding.
By Pablo B•
Interesting figures but nothing too specific. No business cases to make profound analysis or learn from different companies. If you want a very general view of the industry it might help you but I would not pay for this info. I'd try to complete it in the first free 7-days trail to avoid the charge.
By Paolo G•
Quite a disappointing course. Very superficial and name-dropping oriented, without providing much insight into the rationale for certain insurtech or RE-tech business models/ideas. Easily skippable course. Only exception are the two interviews to Wealthfront and Vanguard executives in week 4.
By robert c•
Interesting from a background perspective but thought it was too easy. It was akin to reading a number of generic articles. The interview with Vanguard was insightful but that was the only real different / informative knowledge imparted.
By Jiacheng L•
Christopher Geczy was reading scripts and looking at the notes below the camera most of the time. The two case studies in week4 are very useful, especially the Vanguard one. The course is generally okay, learned something overall.
