    The class is difficult, yes, but the material is interesting - especially if you're invested in finance. Your grade depends on the final. Professor Bollerslev was great

    I really enjoyed this class -- if you're interested in financial markets from a theoretical standpoint, I think it's the class to take. Tim Bollerslev was my professor and he was fantastic -- the guy has won international awards in economics for his research, but manages to be an engaging professor as well.

    Very technically heavy class where we did a lot of modeling. I don't think I really learned that much compared to all the time I put into it so I don't really recommend it.
