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.

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
By Rahul H•
The content of the course is good. However, the professor explains the same is not very pointed - confusing and long story telling.
By Jiacheng L•
Generally good. The best parts are the two case studies in week4, they provided good insights into the industry.

Weakest course in the Specialisation. Incorrect usage of multi choice scoring.
By Tiago M•
Some modules are extremely localized to US reality
By Asghar A S A M•
Instructors and language used in this course was not up to the mark, the explanation to concepts was very round about and not direct. Concepts could have been explained better in simpler sentences.

The content could be much improved and impactful.

US centric course, very biased (without a word of warning that it is a non global one).
