강좌 소개

In this course, you will start by reviewing the fundamentals of investments, including the trading off of return and risk when forming a portfolio, asset pricing models such as the Capital Asset Pricing Model (CAPM) and the 3-Factor Model, and the efficient market hypothesis. You will be introduced to the two components of stock returns – dividends and capital gains – and will learn how each are taxed and the incentives provided to investors from a realization-based capital gains tax. You will examine the investment decisions (and behavioral biases) of participants in defined-contribution (DC) pension plans like 401(k) plans in the U.S. and will learn about the evidence regarding the performance of individual investors in their stock portfolios. The course concludes by discussing the evidence regarding the performance of actively-managed mutual funds. You will learn about the fees charged to investors by mutual funds and the evidence regarding the relation between fees charged and fund performance. Segments of the portfolios of mutual funds that may be more likely to outperform and examples of strategies designed to “earn alpha” will also be introduced. Learners are welcome to take this course even if they have not completed "Investments I: Fundamentals of Performance Evaluation," as the first module contain a review of investment fundamentals and regression analysis to get everyone up to speed. Also, the course contains several innovative features, including creative out-of-the-studio introductions followed by quick-hitting "Module in 60" countdowns that highlight what will be covered in each module, four "Faculty Focus" interview episodes with leading professors in finance, and a summary of each module done with the help of animations! This course is part of the iMBA offered by the University of Illinois, a flexible, fully-accredited online MBA at an incredibly competitive price.

Excellent class! Very useful information for investing. Great faculty focus sessions with UIUC researchers!. Also love the passion that Dr. Weisbenner displays in teaching. Would highly recommend!

Very good introduction of some comedy compared to Investments I. The early review of fundamentals and in-depth discussion and teachings about investment topics were much appreciated.

Investment I was far more interesting...I have an MBA in Finance from St. Joseph's University (Haub )...because I always enjoyed the theoretical CAPM.... .so I would consider this "light-weight" as opposed to Investment I and I look forward to experiencing a different perspective that Schiller will introduce at Yale...I took his online when it was first available from the Yale portal about 12 years ago...but I understand "the teaser concept" and I suspect the higher engaged students will be tested rather than teased should they decided to take the higher engagement path

Prof. Did better presenting in Invst. II but still really needs to take a class on presenting in front of a camera. The content is good, but delivery is lacking. I expect more from professors. (use U Penn's Corp. Finance class as a great example.)

Below average course concentrating on behavioral finance. The name of the course is misleading as it does not provide any "application" based skills training. This course includes mostly discussion on research papers. It would have been good to make this course application based.
