ECON3072: FINANCIAL MARKETS
This course examines the functioning of financial markets and provides students with the tools to make comprehensive analyses, in order to determine the link between financial markets and economic development. As such it covers the most important core topics in the finance literature, including the valuation of bonds, equity and derivatives as well as the measurement of risk. On the financing side of the financial market, capital budgeting and financing costs evaluation methods are assessed. The underlying modern capital market theory is reviewed along with Fisher's separability theorem and the Modigliani-Miller theorem.
