Nice introductory course to FinTech. However, I do not recommend the course for learners without prior knowledge on financial instruments as the course may become technical from time-to-time.
Excellent programme by Professor Christopher Geezy and Assistant Professor Natasha Sarin. Enjoyed the presentation. Right pace and informative. Highly recommend for non-practitioners.

This course was a bit disappointing: from the title, one would guess that Fintech companies are the focus, whereas the bulk of the discussion is on pre-Fintech players (e.g. Visa/Mastercard instead of eWallet players). Additionally, I found the content to be very superficial in nature, with plenty of quotes and statistics, but little in the way of substantial insights into the industry. Finally, and perhaps inevitably, the content is mostly US-focused, thus making this course less relevant for a non-US audience (notwithstanding the importance of Fintech in, for instance, China, Australia, the EU and the UK).

The course is informational. Natasha Sarin is a great presenter, but for some reason she mentions Elizabeth Warren no less than five time during her presentations. There are some typos on the slides, that make me feel like not much attention has been put into the details of the course design.

The Course offers good insights, though It also throws a lot of data to you.
I would urge the curators of the course to focus more on learning the basics and little on cramming up data. For example, most of the quizzes test your ability to remember data points rather than the concept itself.

the course is overall knowledge on fintech for beginner. It should be more case study analysis and more visualization in the slide. I felt that the lecturer reads the slide without emotion. I think that wharton school should be better.

This course was really interesting and helpful in many ways. Now I have better knowledge about what Fin Tech is and what happens in Fin Tech. The course was really good overall. I really enjoyed it.

Interesting. Overly simple: spends too much time on obvious points. Speaks a lot about the financial industry and less about FinTech. I was expecting more Quant.
By Madhur B•
the payments modules and regulations modules were very helpful
however the module 2 was very survey heavy and not sure will be very practically relevant
By Arun V•
The course just about skims the surface of the FinTech industry. What is disappointing is that the 'Technology' aspect of FinTech is not covered here.
By Steven I•
Decent overview, but could go farther into specific priority areas in fintech (virtual assets, adoption in emerging markets, remittances)
By F K•
Good content, but the course could go into a little more detail. 4 weeks is far too long an estimate for this material.
By Konrad D•
The course part in first 2 weeks was very boring but the course part in second 2 weeks was quite interesting.
By Vimbainashe N•
week one and week 2 quizzes where a bit unrealistic. Usually no one remember's exact statistics
