Courses, Articles and many more which can help beginners or professionals.

Finance is mostly details, and just having the ability to systematize and categorize and focus on details can be a huge advantage. by Micheal Burry

This resources are specifically meant for STEM grads. Most of the courses are Math or Coding heavy. Take it at your own risk.

Courses and Lectures

Note: Courses listed below will NOT show any Coursera or Youtube Fams, because those courses are open for all (Anyone can take it, Medical doctor or lawyer can, if needed.) I don't want to (or want you to) spend time in these courses because these courses gives you flavour of subject and not deep understanding. Being an engineer, I want to (wish the same for you) use my already learnt mathematics skills to advance further in topic and dive deep, to do some meaningful work or research.

If you had Udemy courses and say "I know ML", I will lash you with a wet noodle (No offense to udemy).
