Course summary

This programme is designed to help you understand how to determine values for claims to uncertain and risky payments such as company shares and dividends, financial derivatives, metals and commodities, and insurance claims, using fundamental principles from economics and finance.

WHY THIS PROGRAMME

  • Asset Pricing & Investment will provide you with a comprehensive understanding of: theories and empirical characteristics of asset prices and their dynamics in financial markets; the foundations of optimal portfolio theory; how to implement and calibrate asset pricing models in a computer-based learning environment using empirical and econometric techniques.
  • The acquired skills and knowledge on issues relevant to asset pricing and investments are essential for both institutional and individual investors participating in capital and money markets.
  • You will receive training on Bloomberg software in the school's dedicated training suite which will provide hands on experience with asset pricing models.
  • [Bloomberg Experiential Learning Partner logo] We are now partners with Bloomberg Experiential Learning. The ELP program recognises and celebrates academic institutions that are leaders in experiential learning through the integration of Bloomberg terminal exercises into curriculum.
