I am trying to figure out what all online Quant Finance courses are out there which are free or relatively less pricey?

  • CQF is not less pricey
  • Financial Engineering course on Coursera - Not so great unless you are a very basic learner
  • Option Pricing course on EDX - I found it to be good.
  • MIT Open Courseware videos - pretty good.
  • Monte Carlo Methods in Finance - This was hosted on some MOOC platform in 2014. Pretty interesting for beginners

But most of the above ones except CQF is not a full fledged course which 1 can pursue. In today's world of MOOC's there are so many Data Science specializations out there but I don't see any on Quantitative Finance/Stochastic Calculus/Derivatives Modelling etc. courses out there.

Does anybody have any idea if any such courses are available or maybe about to be available?

Thanks a lot.

Just an update on my playlist, It has 33 videos now, roughly 3x more vids. I have included some more general economics and machine learning and programming vids, which have relevant applications in Q finance.

This is a Specialization course on Trading Algorithms. I haven't taken the course, but it seems good.

  • $\begingroup$ Not sure 500 and 800 USD/credit point qualifies as "less pricey". $\endgroup$ – LocalVolatility Dec 6 '16 at 23:06
  • $\begingroup$ Yes, the all inclusive price seems to be $13,000 :-( $\endgroup$ – Deb Dec 19 '16 at 10:06
