I've been waiting for this course to open since last year. I saw it in MIT TechTV but there were no videos yet. Thanks so much MIT for making this quality education available for everyone. I hope there would also be an edX version for this course

This man knows his business. He doesn't need fancy presentation slides. Just the basic black and white slides will do.

This was one of the best lectures I saw, no fancy Superhero chest beating, humble and simple yet I understood it. Thanks a lot and may we all keep learning and earning.

This is GOLD information!
I'm so glad that they did this and I'm angry I'm only finding it now! But better sooner than later.
I can't afford to go to MIT, but finance is something I'm passionate about and I dig everything I can from the internet to absorb.
Thank you MIT
