Financial Engineering is a multidisciplinary field involving finance and economics, mathematics, statistics, engineering and computational methods. The emphasis of FE & RM Part II will be on the use of simple stochastic models to (i) solve portfolio optimization problems (ii) price derivative securities in various asset classes including equities and credit and (iii) consider some advanced applications of financial engineering including algorithmic trading and the pricing of real options. We will also consider the role that financial engineering played during the financial crisis.

FINANCIAL ENGINEERING AND RISK MANAGEMENT PART II からの人気レビュー
Very similar style with Part I. The instructors are clear in explaining the models. However, it would be more useful if the instructors can give several real-world examples on the financial market.
I really enjoyed this course and learned a lot. The quizzes were challenging but really forced me to think through the problems. The forums were very helpful when I got stuck. Thanks Professors!
Great course structure. You get the chance to understand the mechanics around securities and derivatives valuation, as well as put in practice what you just have learnt by completing the exams.
One of the best courses available on Coursera! If you're interested in Quantitative Finance or trying to get a good idea of what financial engineering entails, please take this course.
This course is amazing\n\nHowever, I do not give full score for it because it lack of some quizzes. I do expect we study more since there are many thing left behind.
This course is challenging and the skills learnt are valuable. The materials are well-made and formulas well-defined. I hope they provide more practice quizzes.
Very great introduction to the financial engineering topics. It mainly covers the basics of portfolio management and structured products. Really insightful!
Very insightful course, working in the financial industry can often imagine the material learn't being applied in work environment which is rewarding.
excellent course! questions were hard and had to really work to get the grades. I'll keep going back to the questions from time to time for a review.
Very challenging course that I would recommend to anyone who is interested in financial engineering and financial risk management. Love the math!
Good content and nice explanations. The assignments might need a bit of clean up and couple places the Algo mentioned does not work as intended.
Loved the in depth study of the topics that were covered. I've a much better understanding of financial topics I was familiar with. :-)
