TOP REVIEWS FROM PORTFOLIO SELECTION AND RISK MANAGEMENT
Professor is great and professional. But the contents in week 2 are too many, I think it could be better they are divided into two-week studying.
Amazing and challenging course. Loved every part of it and full-heartedly recommend it.
Great learning experience!!! A perfect course for the beginners...
I really enjoyed this course. Sometimes it required a lot of discipline to analyse investigate, but at the end I've learn a lot.
