Very informative course, with good examples. I particularly enjoyed the video of the Square executive. I just wish David Mutso's signature was somewhat legible on the course certificate.
Prof Musto is a great instructor. Really enjoyed his interesting examples and engaging method of teaching. I liked the fact that he focused on concepts more than data and key terms.

A fine conceptual course to provide a helicopter view of the on-going disruption and future prospects of the financial market via financial technology. Professor David Musto has lucidly designed Week 1 to 3, describing robo-advising, lending, crowdfunding and investing (for-profit as well as social) backed by summarized theory and mathematical background- focusing more on it's application rather than dwelling on unnecessary complications. Quizzes were quite fun since they weren't just based on what was on the slide, but also on the concepts taught. Lastly, the 2 case studies on FinTech companies (Square and CommonBond) provided an exposure to the practical applications of financial, their impact and the opportunities it can tap in future. Do take this course to experience the thrill of the FinTech roller coaster and the enormous potential it has in its store.

Excellent course with detailed knowledge explained in a easy way, so any lay man can understand. I really enjoyed the course and learnt a lot of economics stuffs though i'm not from pure economics background. The reason i give 4 star is the course could have added lectures on ICOs which is a hot topic along with Crowdfunding lectures.
The course dives into the different ways of obtaining and providing funding in today's financial scene, it not only provides an overview but also addresses the challenges in this space.

Covers the breadth of the emerging fintech industry well, but specific details or references to algorithms and techniques used in each of these sectors would have been interesting.

Decent overview of the market, but still suffering from a very US-centric approach which disregards the importance of non-student loans in non-US lending

Although the course provides good insights, however it does not deep delve into the actual outline mentioned, it talks more about the traditional finance concepts and then concluded like "Robo advising exists and might be able to do say XYZ' instead of saying what its actually doing and how can it be capable of expanding more.
Even for the case studies part, Square's experience was short, crisp and more insightful while commonbond's case is more descriptive with less insights and more generic stuff which is ideally of no use.

this course gives me a overall knowledge on lending and other modern lending alternatives. But it is so few case study and visibility to show how the flow work. It will be easy to catch up and attactive.

Pprofessor was hard to follow with all the "ok" and fumbled words. Tried reading along and it reads the same as he spoke. This was hard to watch therefore turned into me taking quiz multiple times

The tone of voice and intonation of the teacher makes the course a bit boring or lose interest, I resorted to reading the slides to learn and present the exams

The content of the course is good. However, the professor explains the same is not very pointed - confusing and long story telling.
