Feedback from Coursera Learners
This is selected feedback from Coursera learners to the Capital Markets and Financial Institutions course taught by Konstantin Kontor:

  • An awesome course. I've never thought that the capital market story may be so interesting. Every day while I have to stop myself from watching the whole week at once. It's really very clear and very intriguing
  • Great! No... Brilliant! Will wait for other courses with Konstantin Kontor as a lecturer
  • The instructor is wonderful! Everything is explained clearly. I am excited although my activities have nothing to do with finance
