The assessments were excellent. Initially, I did have hesitation in getting started, but got hooked to the assessments. Thank you to Kavya and Steve, our Program Managers who encouraged us everyday.
complete view of the businesses related to each type, separated into different sections, but with a clear explanations that the different types are interlinked into a bigger picture

Interesting topic, and some of the supporting litterature is great. However, some of the articles are pretty old, like 2015, and a lot has happened the last 5 years. I had to disagree with the last test, a couple of questions not aligned with the material. Except from that, it was a great walkthrough.

It essentially is a good course, quite informative to be honest. But for a person who is working in the industry it still remains outdated and not in-depth enough. The questions on the otherhand are more focused on mentioned details in the video lecturers, rather than being able to think and evaluate.

Overall it is good course which covers FinTech topics broadly, However, little disappointed with course as it is in form of introduction video supported by collection of articles (Mostly Wikipedia). Also, course requires updates as most of the articles are dated back 2015 to 2017.

I have just completed this course and must admit that it worried me to see so many links to documents or videos from 2015 to 2017. We're living in fast-moving times and therefore this course deserves an update with more recent examples (although the fundamentals are still valid).

It's a basic course which gives you a good overview. I like the course but the quiz are really annoying. Too many checkboxes and very confusing (e.g. has crownfunding being historically used for a funeral ?); too many mandatory lectures on wikipedia / youtube / external website

I liked very much the course, the only bad party over this module is because the links and test questions are not updated. So some text information and test questions do not match.
It should be revised.
Otherwise, the information teached on it is incredible!
by Ederson A d L M•
There are some references to content that are no longer available or that require some form of registration on external sites. In addition, there are many errors in the tests and there is no answer or solution to the questions asked in the forum.

in general terms the course is good, its teachers and didactic material, but this course presents several outdated material links, too outdated article readings, I found several from 2013 backwards.
Please review this for future students.

Some links did not work ore have been outdated.
One test was not possible to fulfill with the Chrome browser, same answers in an onother browser have been correct!
Weekly final test often not corresponding with the lecture

The course is a good primer for beginner learners; very rarely does the course content dig deeper than the high-level explanation of topics. Lots of typos and errors in the course materials spoil the learning experience.

I enjoyed the course. Would have preferred less use of wikipedia as I am unsure of the quality of the information but I did my own research. Will definitely look through and sign up for other courses.
by Angela C•
The content was interesting and informative, except for the Open Banking Project site where the links no longer work (404 error), but the quizzes are awful. I would not recommend this course to others.
by Maria A F•
Kindly update the broken links with new resources. Would appreciate as well if the lectures are in depth rather than just merely relying and directing students to read on outside resources
by Kartikay A•
Started off very well, touching upon a variety of relevant topics. But as the course progressed, the quality seemed to deteriorate. Really had to struggle with the last assessment.
by Yeliena K•
Good overview of history of money, fintech part needs updates: many article either just not behind the link anymore, or just obsolete (2014 fintech predictions for 2020 course?)
by Sridhar T•
There is not much original content from the school. It only used internet based references. Any material from the school's own research department would be much more helpful
by Georgio S•
The course should be title Beginners as the topics introduced are the basics of Fintech. Also many references to Wikipedia which is not a credible source of information
by Shikha C•
Content of the course is really genaeral and very less also. There should b in depth knowlegde of each topic. But the topics are very well synchronized.
by Abdulrahman A•
there is alot of missing content such as unavailable websites and some of then needs subscription also the translation is always earlier 0.5 seconds
by Tor H•
Found the questions slightly basic, and some are less relevant as they only check if you have paid attention and not really check your understanding
by Anirudh G I•
The quizzes are flawed and the language isn't entirely accurate. Course instructors need to improve this course on a priority basis.
by Evanthia S•
Links to few resources (articles, videos) were not functioning and responses to tests were not mentioned in the training videos.
by Neeraj B•
While the course content is good, some videos end abruptly. Plus there is less teaching and more stuff to read from the internet
by Senthil K A•
More complicated questions. Few questions we couldt find answer even though we attempt many times with all alternatives.
Just scratch the surface. In many cases, the articles selected are just opinions and not fact/research based.
