Nice introductory course to FinTech. However, I do not recommend the course for learners without prior knowledge on financial instruments as the course may become technical from time-to-time.
Great teachers, excellent materials and one thing that I loved a lot a set of slides at the end of the chapter that made a lot easier to connect the lecture and class notes with the test.
A good course to get a headstart!

This course is more relevant to policy makers and academics than from daily user's point of view. Lecturers should have gone more into the practical aspects instead of listing down tons of facts and data that most of us wouldn't really remember.
The payment section should cover the latest payment technologies like e-wallets, QR codes etc. instead of just rushing through the list of technologies. There's also a too extensive focus on the US markets, while actually there's a lot of potential and interesting use cases in developing markets that learners should know about.

The course is informational. Natasha Sarin is a great presenter, but for some reason she mentions Elizabeth Warren no less than five time during her presentations. There are some typos on the slides, that make me feel like not much attention has been put into the details of the course design.

The Course offers good insights, though It also throws a lot of data to you.
I would urge the curators of the course to focus more on learning the basics and little on cramming up data. For example, most of the quizzes test your ability to remember data points rather than the concept itself.

I suggest providing the course materials ( sildes) before the video since the speakers are moving fast from a point to another. Having the sildes after finisihing the unit makes me want to go back and study the unit again with the materials in my hand for better understanding.

the course is overall knowledge on fintech for beginner. It should be more case study analysis and more visualization in the slide. I felt that the lecturer reads the slide without emotion. I think that wharton school should be better.

This course was really interesting and helpful in many ways. Now I have better knowledge about what Fin Tech is and what happens in Fin Tech. The course was really good overall. I really enjoyed it.

Interesting. Overly simple: spends too much time on obvious points. Speaks a lot about the financial industry and less about FinTech. I was expecting more Quant.

The content was rather straight forward (even a tad too easy I'd say). Tests ask data-focused questions, not helpful. Presentation is good and well-delivered
von Madhur B•
the payments modules and regulations modules were very helpful
however the module 2 was very survey heavy and not sure will be very practically relevant
von Arun V•
The course just about skims the surface of the FinTech industry. What is disappointing is that the 'Technology' aspect of FinTech is not covered here.
von Steven I•
Decent overview, but could go farther into specific priority areas in fintech (virtual assets, adoption in emerging markets, remittances)
von F K•
Good content, but the course could go into a little more detail. 4 weeks is far too long an estimate for this material.
von Santosh S•
It is an ok introductory course. The instructors are gerat. But, would have been happier with a course that is deep.
von Konrad D•
The course part in first 2 weeks was very boring but the course part in second 2 weeks was quite interesting.
von Vimbainashe N•
week one and week 2 quizzes where a bit unrealistic. Usually no one remember's exact statistics
von Neha K•
Too heavy on graphs and statistics and no real information for the first two weeks
von Jonathan G•
Significant number of typos and smelling mistakes in the lesson slides.
von Jean Z•
Too broad, not enough on the different technologies used.
von Dusan T•
Well designed but too basic.
