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.
