イリノイ大学アーバナ・シャンペーン校(University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign) による Country Level Economics: Macroeconomic Variables and Markets の受講者のレビューおよびフィードバック



This course discusses how macroeconomic variables affect individuals’ personal, professional, and public activities and lays the foundation for the analysis of the mechanisms that drive macroeconomic variables. It starts by introducing the key macroeconomic variables and explaining how they are defined and measured to interpret macroeconomic data properly. Then, the course offers a perspective for separating out various parts of the economy driven by different processes and for combining those components to develop a richer view of the whole. In particular, it applies this approach to the analysis of the relationship of the trade deficit with the budget deficit and private savings, offering insights about some key determinants of the balance of payments. The third and fourth modules focus on the analyses of the foreign currency and money markets to provide fundamental models of the interest rate and exchange rate determination. They also discuss how these variables interact with each other and with the macroeconomic conditions, particularly monetary policy, and the expectations about the future trends in the economy. You will be able to: • Systematically assess the national and international economic environment in which you live and work • Analyze macroeconomic issues using key tools • Be a more effective professional in your line of activity.

The quizzes and assignments may be hard but that's how I learned so much from this class. Prof Hadi brought this course in a way that made me understand the actual situations.



I really enjoyed the course. Professor Hadi is great. This is my first Economics course. Professor explains all the fundamentals in a very easy and detailed manner.

The content covers very good the most important theories and concepts in macro economy and explains in detail the relationship between them. I wish the course would take more advantage of interactive multimedia tools in order to support the spoken word with visual means.

by Dustin W


This is a good course, but be sure you have a foundational level of understanding of Macroeconomics before starting - it doesn't provide a lot of background before diving into more advanced topics.

by Omkar G


The lectures could have been more engaging and interactive. This seems to be a problem of the lecturer I guess. But overall it was a great experience learning.

by Phani M


The scope of subject has been a lot reduced. Not ideal for an MBA course - doesn't cover most relevant & current topics - but good in overall teaching.

by Harris S


Learn something about the money supply and demand and their relationship with the exchange rate. but can hardly used in daily

by Anup P


Professor needs to make the content more interactive and must include more examples since the concepts and theory is too dry

by Kavi K


Interesting and pertinent material but some of the video content is dry and makes it hard to grasp the concepts.

by Fady S


I don't have any problem with the course but the lecture PDF Sources

by Steve M


Content is interesting but presentation is a bit dry.



Hard to understand, need more explanation

by ricardo p o


it was good, could be more dinamic though

by Jon N


Very disappointing. It's a challenge to listen to the lectures, read the notes and still try to pass the tests. The professor doesn't do a great job of explaining some pretty complex ideas and to make matters worse, there are a lot of them - and they build on each other. I'm generally a good student, but I had to work VERY hard to pass the quizzes in this course and even though I did, I can't say I actually learned anything. This one was very disappointing.

by Johnny F


Complex topics, relationships and topics are not adequately explained in lectures. Quizzes go far beyond the introductory material, and often ask for formulas and concepts to be applied in a way they were never fully explained.

by Dana S H


material is too dry. The way the material is presented is hard to understand and follow

it should be more interesting

by Maprang


The course is much lower in quality and entertainment value compared to the previous 2 courses in Microeconomics in the Specialization. I don't recommend anyone take this course unless you need it to complete pre-req for iMBA. It indeed feels like a chore to get through and you would have to google or draw knowledge from other Macroeconomics courses to understand the materials taught in this course. The prof. mumbles throughout the videos and I wonder how the university of Illinois let these videos slip through the quality checking process.

by Anas A


If you can read english, find interesting book that talk about Macroeconomics as this course is very dry and the teaching methods used are not applicable to this era (reading from the slides). It was very difficult for me to engage in the lengthy videos.

by Ryan S


An important but complicated topic such as this deserves a course and instructor that is able to properly explain it. The disparity between the quizzes and the material that precedes it is laughable.

by Natalie C


Inadequate lecture materials for test and assignment preparation. Students should not have to go outside of required readings in order to learn required content for course.

by Abdullah F A M


the videos are too long

assignments are difficult

and dr asfahani is not like dr larry

i loved dr larry much more

dr asfahani is not interesting in his presentations at all

by Kausar K


Content is very dry; slides have too much text and don't depict concepts well. Formulas, and teaching methodology is not structured.



very disappointing service & incorrect course material with no response from the instructor at all. Very frustrating course.
