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.

Excellent course for finance & Risk professionals. Both professors are excellent, it was a pleasure to learn. I would request for part 3 where they can cover more concepts in market and counter party credit risk (this will complete the risk management aspect).

All in all a great course!!!.

I think material and teaching is very good, but the lack of instructions on the quizzes makes it a 4/5 course rather than a 5/5. I understand that the quizzes are meant to be challenging, but some questions were written very poorly and could easily be misinterpreted

The content of the course is really useful, the explanation is always nice. The assignments are good but the questions are not clearly specified. The language of the questions and the instructions before the quiz should be improved.

Very similar style with Part I. The instructors are clear in explaining the models. However, it would be more useful if the instructors can give several real-world examples on the financial market.

This course is amazing

However, I do not give full score for it because it lack of some quizzes. I do expect we study more since there are many thing left behind.

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

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.

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.

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

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