Useful quantitative models help you to make informed decisions both in situations in which the factors affecting your decision are clear, as well as in situations in which some important factors are not clear at all. In this course, you can learn how to create quantitative models to reflect complex realities, and how to include in your model elements of risk and uncertainty. You’ll also learn the methods for creating predictive models for identifying optimal choices; and how those choices change in response to changes in the model’s assumptions. You’ll also learn the basics of the measurement and management of risk. By the end of this course, you’ll be able to build your own models with your own data, so that you can begin making data-informed decisions. You’ll also be prepared for the next course in the Specialization.

TOP REVIEWS FROM MODELING RISK AND REALITIES
Excellent orientation on risk and modelling. Both instructors were clear, articulate and well-organized. The modules , examples and quizzes reinforced the learning.
Sergei should be more empathic, sometimes it feels boring; despite of that the entire course is great.
I would have love to practise a little bit more of simulation.
Not too bad of a course. Fairly beginner but there is some interesting things to learn. I would recommend watching the videos at 1.5x speed because they speak fairly slow.
A very good and practical course, especially if you have some basic knowledge in statistics. Make sure to take your time and try out the excel examples to deepen your understanding.
