covers good amount of material and exactly what is in the outline, presented with enough detail to follow. Good walk-through of the spreadsheets helps understanding, easy to follow along and practice.
Material was very well presented. Week 3 was challenging, but taking time to print out the slides, work through them rigorously proved very helpful. I found all sections very, very informative.

I thought that this course was tremendously helpful, as it really drove home how to execute simulations which is something that I had considered but not really utilized before.

I thoroughly enjoyed this course. I not only learned a lot in terms of ability to use Excel and am now better equipped to approach data in certain (and uncertain) situations
By Gustavo A•
Great examples, the best course of the specialization so far.
Week 3 was a little bit slow. I think it was going through some theory that was already covered by course 1.

Very good course content. Was looking to apply to non-financial (engineering) modeling. There are similarities and may be able to use the same methodologies to simulate
By Ardian F•
This course has rich theoretical and practical material if you want to study about risk and reward analysis.
Recommended for aspiring young finance or business analyst!

This course was very insightful. It's a great refresher course if you have a finance background. It's also beginner-friendly if you do not have finance background.

The professors are amazing. I could grasp all the concepts easily because of the good pace maintained by the professors. Thank you so much for this course!
By Ambuya J•
The course was what I expected it to be. I was desperately looking for enlightenment in model risk and realities which was well delivered in the course.
By Dmitry P•
A well-structured and practice-oriented course with a few useful practical tips about Excel-based business models focusing on risk and reward aspects.

Professor Savin is a rare kind, who explains very clear and brilliant. My excel skills were also sharpened. Overall, a course is worth attending.

Course was easiest to digest compared to other courses in this specialization; PDFs and Excel files provided sufficient learning opportunities
By Paul B•
Great course. Very practical in approach and well explained by the instructors. This tied well to the earlier courses in the specialization.
By Kumar T•
The course covers important statistical concepts pertaining to risks and explains the interpretations and calculation in details. A must do.
By Michael A•
Excellent instruction: slides and lectures are well coordinated. Material is interesting and the test re-enforce the slides and lectures.

This surely was the best course, amongst the last 3. The instructors were great, went in-depth and the tests also had some standard.
By Omar G A•
Well taught. Interesting for the novice at least. Even for the one with experience in modeling and statistics but in another field.
By Teuku N Z J•
The course was very helpful as it gives a balanced theoretical and practical understanding in dealing with risk and uncertainties.
By far the best course of "business & financial modeling". Getting my respect back after losing it in the "spreadsheets & models"
By Meg B•
Top notch instructors. Very organized. Materials were outstanding, especially the simulations. Enjoyed this class very much.
By Cory E•
Very useful and engaging class. I especially enjoyed the examples. Also a very good balance between statistics and Excel.
By Galib H K•
Very useful in learning the assessment of risk. But I'd like to solve more complex quiz questions than those given here.
By Rahul R•
Got to learn many new things which are very relevant in the real world. Hoping to make use and apply the skills at work!
