Description: ‘Garbage in, garbage out.’ That’s the mantra for anyone who builds a financial model. Making sense of the long-term isn’t easy. There are so many variables and unknowns that create ambiguity and risk. As a result, it is crucial for analysts to set precise outcomes and hash out the right parameters, developing a model that’s flexible enough to accommodate change and transparent enough to be readily understood.

In this course, students will “learn the methods for creating predictive models for identifying optimal choices; and how those choices change in response to changes in the model’s assumptions. [They’ll] also learn the basics of the measurement and management of risk. By the end of this course, [they’ll] be able to build their own models with their own data, so that they can begin making data-informed decisions.”

Review: “Good practical examples of the concepts. In general, seems to me that the courses of the specializations do not fit together well. At times, basic things mentioned elsewhere are repeated, some others are not explained sufficiently.” For additional reviews, click here.

Additional Background: This course is the first part of a “Business and Financial Modeling” specialization, a five course series that covers portfolio and risk management, long-term investing, and understanding financial markets. To learn more about these courses and register for them, click here.
