All the instructors were very knowledgeable and used lots of real life examples to explain the theory. They were also kind of funny and turned a "stiff" topic into a lively and fascinating story.

The course is fine but the obligation to pay for reviewing quizzies is a mistake if the course expects to get good valuations (in stars) and promotion. There are similar or even better content available in other courses which are truly open and that request for payment if the student wish to get the certificate.
Wrong positioning of University of Genève offering this MOOC from an economical point of view. They ask for more than others and will get less.

One of the things that I didn't like is that I couldn't complete the course because, without purchasing the course, I didn't have access to the assignments / quizzes. But the content is good and the Geneva teachers are nice (specially Michel!). Also, some USB guest lectures are not adequate for this type of course, which is for beginners. Sometimes the guest lectures are not even related to the content of the modules where they are presented.

This is a very basic course on financial markets and adresses various topics in a relatively vague way. It is a good introduction if you have not much experience with finance and economincs, but on the other hand, sometimes it treats some topics as if the student already has previous knwoledge on them.

A really helpful course, covering a wide range of topics. However, A more in-depth detailed explanation of the principles and theories, their derivations and applications, could've helped in providing a deeper understanding of them.

A little too theoretical and the subjects are not easy to follow.
It should have more step by step and deep explanation (math stuff).
The interest rates vs bonds are difficult for begginers, it should be transmitted in different ways.

I learn some interesting things. The course gets better for week 3-4. However, the course could use better the Coursera format and strenght.
The certified certificate is pricy compared to other courses.
In overall it’s good.

The course is comprehensive and the instructors have good teaching skills.
The level is introductory.
I would recommend this course to beginners with limited previous exposure to investment management.

Great subjects and some great teachers. But every now and then I missed some proper explanations.
Further, reverences to articles and books to better understand the subjects were missing as well.

Very helpful for people who are new to the field. However, I do wish many of the concepts were explained more clearly; often new concepts are introduced and no clear definition is given.

Good basic understanding. However the professors can be a bit more professional, sometimes it feels like Im a high school student again, the way they explain things.

cours très complet couvrant la plupart des concepts à connaître pour mieux comprendre les markets outlooks. Mais intervenants parfois inégaux.

just a normal online course, the instructors are just reciting their ppt and prepared materials. Pretty boring.

Some very good explanations, especially by Michel Girardin. Some other courses lack explanations.

The course is nice, but I was under the impression that this course is for beginners, while the lecturers did not explain the terms they used clearly. for example i finished the course and passed it without understanding what is the duration of the bond!! practically speaking, I used to learn the terms from the lecturers and google them to understand and the website investopedia was my main help in this matter. I also think practical examples might be useful in this matter

This course is too elementary. U of G is considered to be a top university in the world, I am expecting an advanced course, at least teach us some asset pricing theories, such as APT, thanks.
