TOP REVIEWS FROM FINTECH: FOUNDATIONS, PAYMENTS, AND REGULATIONS
Good for beginners to vet their appetite and dig deeper going forward. Well conceptualized in terms of course content and flow for the target learners. Thanks for the effort, Coursera and Wharton.
Great teachers, excellent materials and one thing that I loved a lot a set of slides at the end of the chapter that made a lot easier to connect the lecture and class notes with the test.
Well paced, good coverage of emerging and existing technologies and regulatory frameworks, and discussion on emerging issues that provide opportunities for innovation and regulation
Thank you, Wharton University of Pennsylvania, for the course. The content covered in the lectures forms a foundation of the Fintech sector and the working compliance of institutions.
