This course will give you a deep understanding of modern finance. You will learn the economic and mathematical foundations of modern asset pricing. The course starts by developing models to value and hedge derivatives on equity, exchange rates, and forwards. You will also learn the mathematical tools needed to understand continuous time models of asset pricing.  

This course introduces you to the powerful software tools, MS Excel, VBA and MATLAB, commonly used by professionals in the financial industry to develop simple or sophisticated models. You will learn to use MS Excel functionalities that are most relevant for building transparent intermediate and advanced level models. The VBA instruction will enable you to build user-defined functions and also process automation. The section on MATLAB focuses on the language syntax, plotting functionalities, and toolboxes critical for building financial models such as the statistics, the financial, the financial derivative and the optimisation toolboxes. 

This course studies the implications of the portfolio-demand models for the pricing of primitive assets such as stocks. You will gain a deep understanding of valuation of fixed income securities and develop a solid grounding in the design of optimal portfolios.


This course is designed to give you a thorough understanding of the quantitative models and methods routinely used in finance. You will learn to bridge the gap between finance theory and the real world by studying the main methods of empirical analysis in finance.


This course is designed to give you a deeper understanding of financial statements analysis with an emphasis on the relationship among all the stakeholders in value creation, the link between operations and finance, and the value drivers to improve financial management.
You will examine specific features of, and the gap between, IFRS and US GAAP. The course will focus on interpreting financial statements beyond the obvious presentation – methods to read between the lines, to decipher “optimisation” of results through accounting “window dressing”.
The course discusses conceptual and technical problems in measuring wealth creation, the adequate level of investments in working capital or capital expenditure, margins, company’s financing, leverage effect and profitability through a study of what ratios can and cannot do, when assessing businesses, corporate development and their sustainability.

The purpose of this course is to develop your understanding of corporate finance and give you the conceptual foundations for making informed corporate assessments or key financial decisions.  Emphasis will be put on critical thinking more than on memorising formulae. You will learn to evaluate complex corporate finance decisions; understand the perspectives of corporate managers, shareholders, investors and intermediaries; and make links between practical corporate finance and modern corporate finance theory. 

This course will prepare you to work as a desk risk manager for a complex financial institution. You will discover how to estimate the joint distribution of risk factors and how to translate it into a P&L distribution; for which risk measures can be calculated.
You will learn how to test whether a risk model ‘works’ (backtesting); how to choose a risk model appropriately; and how to ‘stress test’ a portfolio. Upon completion of this course you will have a solid grounding in the measurement of market risk and be able to critically assess the strengths and weaknesses of various methods used for estimating P&L distribution. 

This is a course in “state–of the-art” portfolio construction techniques and strategic and tactical asset allocation. It extents the classical mean-variance optimisation framework developed by Markowitz to deal with transaction costs and the various constraints faced by investors.
In first part of the course you will learn different approaches to mitigate estimation risk in expected returns and risk (variance-covariance) estimates including Bayesian techniques, risk based portfolio construction and the Black-Litterman model. The second part of the course will teach you the role of liabilities in asset allocation, describe the portfolio management process and the importance of the investment policy statement and review various models used in practice to estimate long term expected asset returns for strategic asset allocation decisions.
The course will also discuss the models, techniques and applications of tactical asset allocation strategies, the academic empirical evidence on the question of asset return and risk predictability and the modeling issues involved in building successful asset return prediction models.
The course concludes with case studies of asset allocation strategies for different investment strategies and assets – global stock and bond markets, sectors, investment styles, currencies, and commodities.

The objective of this course is to give an overall presentation of the best practices to Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) in light of what has been learned from the subprime and sovereign debt crises. The course will instruct you in the latest methods for measuring and managing market risk, credit risk, operational risk and model risk. The course begins with a review of the typology of risk types and the various potential exposures of corporations to types on uncertainties, for both financial as well as non-financial corporations.
You will learn about the post-crisis regulatory framework for banks and discover the implications for managing risks at non-bank corporations. There is an emphasis on how the new dynamic framework for stress testing and scenario analysis imposed by the banking regulators will impact the strategy of the bank. You will learn how banks and non-bank firms, can align their business plan with their risk appetite and regulatory constraints. The course concludes with an examination of risk capital and how risk capital can be attributed to business lines as part of a risk-adjusted performance measurement system.

The purpose of this course is to explore the issues of valuation, funding and risk management from the point of view of the financial manager of a multinational corporation. You will gain a solid understanding of both the markets and financial instruments (forwards, options, futures and swaps) for hedging currency and interest rate risk. The course explores the corporate uses of international markets and financial instruments to study the practical problems of measuring and managing currency and interest rate risk faced by banks and multinationals when investing or raising capital abroad. You will learn the principles of multinational cash and credit risk management, project appraisal and international capital budgeting. 

This course offers you an introduction to the basics of financial regulation and to the ethics of the financial industry; the compliance with concepts of good conduct or best business practices to supplement law and regulation. You will gain an understanding of how regulatory and ethical concerns do or should drive participants in the financial industry, with a focus on the investment fund industry. The course reviews the purpose of financial regulation, and the general approach to regulating firms and individuals. You will learn about the European regulation of the investment fund industry, in the retail and non-retail segments. You will discover the principles and values on which codes of ethics, of good conduct and standards of business practices rely on, and how these principles interact with regulation. 

This course delivers the key ideas for a critical understanding of how actively managed portfolios fulfil the investors’ objectives. You will learn the main performance metrics, how to analyse properties, and interpret the communication around an investment strategy. 

This course will give you a working knowledge of the techniques used for investing in, analysing, and/or advising private and institutional clients on, alternative investments such as hedge funds and commodity trading advisors. You will learn how to absorb and apply, the analytical arguments in the technical publications – the in-house research notes of financial institutions and practitioner oriented journals – that deal with alternative investments.
