One of my favorite professors in the ECON department! His lectures have lots of reallife examples and are exceptionally helpful to talk to you about latest financial news after class. His class require an essay which you can defenitely talk to him about lots of things going on in the world, and could boost your understanding about the material covered in class.

Professor Williams presents interesting and real-world relevant financial market topics in an engaging and effective manner--particularly so for an online environment. Personally, I was amazed by how much my understanding of options and puts improved after the first few lectures on these topics, which seemed like a daunting foreign language at the onset. I also enjoyed being able to apply previously acquired accounting and macroeconomic course material to this course.

The course is efficiently structured, with two exams and a term paper that allows students to delve into a financial topic of particular interest--with all the room for creative exploration and research. Professor Williams provides optional practise problems in order to help students strengthen their understanding of lecture material, and teaches students quite-necessary Excel skills along the way. The exams are fair and reflective of course topics as stated on the syllabus. The textbook is quite helpful--the chapter readings complement lectures.

Overall, this engaging course is exceptionally taught and wonderfully structured by a highly knowledgeable and practised instructor who genuinely prioritises student learning and interest.
