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: No reviews.

Additional Background: This course is the first part of an “Investment Management” 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.
