Course Launching Date The first session of the course will be launched on April 11th, 2016.

Each module contains a set of practice and graded quiz questions.

The Project The preparation of this MOOC has been an exciting adventure for many professionals at AXA Investment Managers and HEC, both for the speakers and a wealth of contributors.
