I am sure that with your support all students will reach his goals. I have review the syllabus and i think that it is very interesting and amazing. I wiil do my program of studying for all themes of this course i can assimilate.Also i think that would be excelent if the answers of our questions during the course can be ready as soon as we do the questions, this is very important for us. Finally, i congratulations for you and i want to have other courses similarly to this for all students that required new knowledge. A lot of thanks.

This is a course you will not soon forget, if you stick with it! I struggled a fair amount in the beginning, but over time I began to understand the fairly detailed mathematically intricate material. When you finish the course, you will have a much better understanding of important topics in financial engineering such as a wide variety option type products, term structures of interest rates, portfolio optimization, bonds, fixed instruments default mechanics, etc. I can't say enough about the instructors (Haugh and Iyengar) enthusiasm, active participation, and diligence, not to mention their broad knowledge of the topics covered. They were actively involved not only in designing the detailed spreadsheets used in the problem sets, but also providing a fair amount of mechanical guidance in the forums. This is a valuable and practical course and I can't recommend it enough for those interested in learning some of the intricacies relevan...

If you have a stock portfolio and you want to take the next step and start to trade more exotic contracts: options, futures e.t.c. Then this course is a good start to get a grip on how to price those exotic contracts. Very cool stuff. Most of the assignments uses excel, because excel isn't available for my Linux systems I programed most of my assignments, until I discovered that LibreOffice have a non-linear solver as a addon. Maybe next time they should base the assignments on LibreOffice which is non-proprietary and runs on more platforms. The course is excellent converted to the online form, the videos is small segments on each concepts. You have 100 tries on the assignments, so you can submit until you eliminated all your mistakes. All in all an excellent course.
