The course is informational and planned in a structured way. It could use some more elaboration and current industry standards in depth.

The last module where we have to submit 2 papers, needs to be reviewed by 2 other peers, and this is where am stuck. Unfortunately, i believe there are no other candidates taking this course and hence my paper is not being evaluated and instead of completed the course well within the time frame, the timeline is automatically pushed forward. And also my certificate is stuck.

this issue needs to be resolved.

The Course was exposing. It was also detailed as to the inherent risks within a FINTECH and how to manage same within the context of the firm's risk appetite.

My only suggestion is that, the final project is solely peer-graded. I think the professor should just take few minutes to review as well.

Overall, the course was great.

This is generally good course on Fintech and FI, albeit on introductory basis; Week 4 on Risk Management is really low-tech, say backups are using tapes and CD, and in general is using dated materials. Otherwise, the course is nice intro and refresher on the area.
