Practical and valuable for fresh finance graduates who further wanna take their learning to the next level. By taking this guided project I worked on Excel where I used financial formulas such as Stdev, VAR & COVAR to decipher the beta (systematic risk) and overall risk (systematic and unsystematic) of the single stock and portfolio. Moreover, I have learnt about alpha which shows how one's investment choice performed well compared to the proxy market or an index. To sum it up, it is a useful course for young starters who want to grow and progress in their career.
