You will take three foundation courses in online format over the July/August period. The selection of courses, done by the selection committee, will depend on your choice of specialisation and background.

The course is designed to provide students with an overview of the foundations of financial accounting with a practical focus on financial statement analysis and the valuation of public organisations. Upon completion of the course, you will have the necessary competencies to evaluate a company’s financial performance using the relevant financial statement analytical methods and ratios, perform a basic valuation of public companies and, link a company’s financial performance with its market valuation.

This course will provide you with a solid grounding in the principles and practice of finance. You will develop an understanding of the tools necessary to make good financial decisions. This module aims to provide knowledge and understanding of key management issues in corporate finance and in the market for financial assets. Upon completion of the course, you will be able to apply major valuation techniques and know-how to maximize the value of a portfolio.

Income and derivative instruments play a key role in transferring risks in the economy and are commonly used in investment and corporate financial management. This course offers a first exploration of the world of derivatives securities such as forwards, futures, swaps and options. The purpose of this course is to provide the fundamentals for a good understanding of how these instruments trade, how they can be valued, and how they should be used. Upon completion of the course, you will be able to build fixed income and derivatives portfolios fitting specific needs and/or expectations and to price fixed income and derivatives instruments.

This course will offer you a whole new range of tools to enhance their performance and allow them to create dynamic user-oriented interfaces. Your overall understanding of Excel’s mechanics will be greatly enhanced. Upon completion of the course, you will be able to efficiently work with very large tables of dynamic data and use advanced features like names, dynamic pictures, controls, and macros.

This course will provide you with an advanced and rigorous background in mainstream issues in modern corporate finance, including Valuation, Capital Structure, and Payout Policies. This is an applied course in which you will learn how firm policies affect firm value and then will have to apply all those techniques to suggest optimal firm policies for a “real” firm. You will develop your analytical skills to analyze and estimate the value of companies to examine the effect of different policies on firm value and design the optimal policies.

This seminar aims to develop the cognitive and behavioral abilities to manage and lead effectively across cultures particularly for students pursuing careers in finance. After attending this seminar, you will be able to understand the role of managers and their leadership challenges, you will gain practical experience with diversity by working in international teams effectively and productively and question stereotypes through heightened cultural awareness and the critical analysis of diverse leadership styles.

This course builds on the fundamental notions of corporate finance and financial derivatives markets to answer what a corporate financial manager, e.g., the Treasurer, the CFO, or the CEO, must do to impact the firm’s financial risk and increase shareholder value. It discusses the main types of financial risks that corporates may face, how to measure them and optimize their impact on firm value, as part of the company’s strategic plan. Upon completion of the course, you will be able to construct financial or operational hedges for individual risk exposures and devise global risk management policies for firms exposed to multiple risks.

Strategic decisions within corporates are always taken in cooperation with Finance as a function. Accordingly, financial specialists and managers need to be prepared to be active members of teams that drive strategy, decide on investments and, lead change and innovation. The course will prepare you to play an active role in the process of strategy creation and -implementation of their future companies and clients.  You will understand current heavy technology & business trends, understand the managerial & financial challenges of managing innovation & digital transformation, understand the key role of finance as a function in strategy creation and implementation and, also, key concepts of strategic thinking and more recent business models and strategic concepts.

This course will help gain proficiency regarding the key strategic, financial, and legal issues of M&A deals. After having taken this course, you will have a good understanding of Company Valuation concepts, M&A deal structuring drivers, M&A transaction legal concepts, Purchase Price Allocation and consolidation of an M&A transaction. You will be able to perform Company Valuation in an M&A environment, drive and customize an M&A process to a specific situation.

This course applies modern portfolio theory to analyse and evaluate a variety of investment strategies offered to individual and institutional investors. It provides a solid foundation for building optimal portfolios using investment strategies and products spanning different assets and markets. We study investment strategies based on factors such as value, momentum, low risk, and carry across multiple asset classes: equities, sovereign and corporate bonds, currencies, commodities, volatility, and real estate. Upon completion of the course, you will understand the issues and challenges involved in the design and construction of multi-asset investment strategies and products, the risk and return drivers of multi-asset investment strategies. You will be able to apply modern portfolio theory to build viable investment strategies and predict their performance.

A sustainable business can create social value while at the same time generate profits to investors. Using academic evidence and real-life examples, students will learn how to apply, analyse, and evaluate the use of sustainability practices by both companies and financial professionals. Upon completion of the course, you will be able to assess the role of executive pay, stewardship and shareholder activism, and investment strategies in generating social value without sacrificing profits and formulate how companies can embed sustainability in their business models.
