This FRM course by Coursera is all about Financial Engineering and Risk Management. Through this course, the learner will gain knowledge about price derivative securities, fixed income, credit and mortgage-backed securities using simple stochastic models. This course also offers an interview with Emanuel Derman, the writer of “My Life as a Quant”. Studying this course will cultivate the learners mind with the understanding of asset allocation, portfolio optimization, applications of financial engineering such as real options, commodity, energy derivatives and algorithmic trading. Furthermore, it will also polish the skills of pricing, financial modelling, financial risk and financial management. You might also be interested in related FRM courses click here.

We hope that students who complete the course will begin to understand the “rocket science” behind financial engineering but perhaps more importantly, we hope they will also understand the limitations of this theory in practice and why financial models should always be treated with a healthy degree of skepticism. The follow-on course FE & RM Part II will continue to develop derivatives pricing models but it will also focus on asset allocation and portfolio optimization as well as other applications of financial engineering such as real options, commodity and energy derivatives and algorithmic trading..
