Any thoughts on the Coursera specialization on Investment Management?

I plan to invest some time and money in following this course: https://www.coursera.org/specializations/investment-management

I am interested in investing and stock markets and wish to invest some of my own money in the near future.

Do you think this is a smart choice or are there better sources for learning? What is your experience?

PhD in Biochemistry looking to move to Finance (Switzerland)

Hi Reddit, I recently graduated as a PhD in Biochemistry in Switzerland would like to transition to Finance/Consulting. I have been listening to more Economy-oriented podcast (Freakonomics - Planet Money) for few months and would like to start applying soon. I guessed that my profile is more oriented to start in consulting, but I would like to give a shot to finance.
Right now, I am looking for MOOCs like this or that in order to learn and show future potential employers my interests. Unfortunately I have not worked in a private company except for technical summer jobs in my early 20s. I am looking right know to work part-time for some startups to improve my CV.
I would be happy to make the transition the smoothest possible as I have a mortgage to pay. (I cannot take a full time degree but a part-time is possible). CFA level 1 could be an option, MBA with my CV I would not be able to have a great one and afford it.
I have talked to some VC's who hold a PhD but they told me they are from a time were the transition was easier than now. I am still new to this field and not sure of all the option available and which to pick.
What possible advice could you give ?
Thanks in advance for your answers.

TL;DR: PhD in Biochemistry in Switzerland looking to go to finance.

Engineer Looking to Shift Into Finance

I graduated as an Engineer and am currently working as a Project Manager in the Construction Industry. Throughout my time there I have been more interested in joining finance (specifically on the Real Estate side, but not restrictive). I am looking for guidance (either from experienced professionals or those who had made the same jump, I am told it is common haha).
