Acerca del Curso

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. We hope that students who complete the course and the prerequisite course (FE & RM Part I) will have a good understanding of the "rocket science" behind financial engineering. But perhaps more importantly, we hope they will also understand the limitations of this theory in practice and why financial models should always be treated with a healthy degree of skepticism....

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. It is very useful to get into Financial Engineering Topics. The tests are not easy, so every week presents a challenge that forces you to deeply understand what is being taught.

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.

I like most part of this course but some questions are quite confusing and not relevant to how much you understand the course material

perfect course, nice professors, but somewhat very suitable for analytics of pricing not quantitative trading.

Explanation could have been a little bit better in some modules. Overall, very good content and exercises

Some of the questions ins quizes are a little ambiguous. More instructions/explanations would be nice.

The course is a good one. As an extension from Part I it should be deeper in the math.

Still a good presentation of the efficient frontier, the sharp ratio, CAPM, the greeks, ,delta hedging, and the volatility surface. I would have prefer to stick to this program and to go a bit more in depht on the remaining modules.

The topic is interesting. The professors provide little explanations beyond the Slides. Questions in Quices are some times confusing.

I got a perfect score in the course, but despite of the good structure of syllabus (one of the stars), the subject was not explored in a consistent matter. Some weeks lacked references (text books), and in some lectures the instructor went about quick recitals of the mathematical formulas without any insights or intuition. The instructors also seemed knowledgeable (the second star), but appeared to be always in a hurry. Lots of room for improvement.

Poor explanation. Lots of technical details. And it uses Excel.....

The concepts delivered in the course need to be simplified. Derivations have been pasted on slides verbatim. The instructors can use their expertise to simplify concepts and explain them along with examples. Such effort on the part of the instructors is totally missing.

There's no way to get help in this course. I'm stuck on one of the quizzes -- probably just something easy that I've mis-read-- but there's no way to ask questions, so there's no way for me to complete the quiz. This is very frustrating!

No proof of many formula, some concepts should be introduced in more detail in order to make them fully comprehensible, e. g. LETF

Teacher doesn't explain the material, just reads from the slides. Forum doesn't work. Quizes questions are incorrect.

Answers to week 2 are wrong, no forum to discuss it, submitted a case over a month ago - still no reply.
