Six 6-Week Modules 1st Module: FINE 678 - Financial Economics (3 Credits) This course covers the basic principles of valuation in modern finance and applies them to the pricing of financial securities and to the investment decisions of firms. Topics include interest rates, the valuation of bonds, stocks and options, optimal portfolio choice, the price of risk, and capital budgeting. The course serves as a foundation for the rest of the finance courses in the program. FINE 681 - International Capital Markets (3 Credits) This course provides a comprehensive analysis of international capital markets including the financial assets traded in these markets, e.g., debt securities, equities, and currencies, the performance of the asset management industry, and the in-depth coverage of the recent international financial crises. This course also covers the theoretical models that characterize open economies and that explain how prices, interest rates, inflation, and exchange rates are determined. 2nd Module: FINE 679 - Corporate Finance Theory (3 Credits) This course provides a framework for understanding how firms finance their activities. The course studies the different forms of financing available to firms (e.g., bonds, loans, stocks, warrants), the sources of these funds (e.g., banks, private equity, institutional investors, individual investors), and how firms’ capital structures are shaped by corporate and personal taxes, bankruptcy costs, conflicts of interests between shareholders and debt-holders, and differential access to information in capital markets. Students apply these analytical tools to case studies that emulate real business situations to learn how to design securities to maximize value and to optimize payout policy. FINE 680 – Investments (3 Credits) This course provides the tools to become a successful investment manager. Students learn how to establish appropriate investment objectives, develop optimal portfolio strategies, and evaluate investment performance. The course is designed to be highly interactive and hands-on.

A strong understanding of derivatives is now key for many roles such as corporate treasurers, fund managers, institutional investors, risk managers, traders and, more generally, at any senior management level. In this course, students become familiar with the various derivative markets and uses of their respective products. Valuation and risk management models of these products are dealt with in detail, while remaining focused on practical applications. ACCT 604 - Financial Statements 1 (3 Credits) This course provides an overview of the financial reporting system with an emphasis on the conceptual background and tools required to understand, analyze, and exploit the information contained in financial statements. The course combines lectures on concepts and methods with practical cases in which students apply the learned tools to real business situations. The course also provides the understanding of how alternative practices in financial reporting affect corporate financing and investment decisions. 4th Module: FINE 683 - Advanced Corporate Finance (3 Credits) This course studies the critical steps in the financial and economic maturation of a firm: venture capital financing rounds, initial public offerings, leverage buyouts, mergers, divestures and spin-offs. On each of these topics, the course offers an in-depth analysis of the process, of the parties involved and on the sources of gains and inefficiencies. The course also uses these operations to illustrate a series of advanced topics in corporate finance, namely, the corporate governance of firms, the role of risk management, the impact of product market competition on funding choices, and the relationship between trading in financial markets and firms' financial decisions. All these issues are approached through different angles, i.e., lectures, case studies, simulations, and interventions from the practitioner community. FINE 684 - Fixed Income Markets (3 Credits) Fixed income markets, the largest financial marketplace in the world, involve a large and diverse set of participants and market structures. In this course, students acquire a thorough grasp of fixed income instruments and their use in asset management, financial engineering, and risk management. The course covers fixed income mathematics, risk concepts, term-structure analysis, credit risk modeling, and derivatives valuation. In addition, significant time is spent on the most recent market developments such as mortgage-backed securities, securitization and credit derivatives. 5th Module: FINE 685 - Market Risk Management (3 Credits) Corporations and financial institutions face a plethora of risks, and finance professionals need the know-how to measure and manage these risks. In this course, students acquire the tools to critically appraise commercially available risk management systems and to understand the use of derivatives in risk management. The course covers state-of-the-art risk measurement and management techniques and the technical skills required to implement them. FINE 688 - Mergers and Acquisitions (3 Credits) The objective of the course is to gain an understanding of the reasons firms engage in merger and acquisition activities and the processes used to successfully accomplish and create shareholder value from these activities. Topics include valuation in merger and acquisitions, joint ventures and alliances, cross-border M&A, and divestures. 6th Module: FINE 673 - Finance Fundamentals (3 Credits) This course provides tools for quantitative data analysis in Finance and serves as a stepping stone to the research thesis, which is a part of the Integrative Finance Project. The course is applied and project-based. It exposes students to the full production line of data analytics, including the identification and collection of data, proper statistical analysis, and the presentation of the analysis to a variety of audiences.

Campus 2 years October 2017 Czech Republic Prague

International Economic and Political Studies (IEPS) is a two-year English-language Master's degree programme, which seeks to investigate contemporary political, economic and social issues from a multidisciplinary perspective. [+]

International Economic and Political Studies (IEPS) is a two-year English-language Master's degree programme, which seeks to investigate contemporary political, economic and social issues from a multidisciplinary perspective. Although the predominant emphasis in IEPS is on approaches from economics and political science, students will also be expected to explore their historical, legal and sociological aspects. The IEPS programme offers a unique study both in its contents and methods. It is based neither on an overview of facts about the social organisation, nor on crunching of abstract mathematical models – it offers the students the ways of thinking and understanding social, economic and political phenomena in globalised societies. Students deal with the nature of economic objectives of agents, social organisation, institutions of power, emergence of conflicts and aims at cooperation. They are expected to master the principles of modern non-conventional economic thinking and be able to apply it in political decision-making at the level of supra-national institutions, states, regional governments, corporations, firms, political parties and groups of citizens. Description of the entrance examination and evaluation criteria In addition to the application, the following documents must be provided: 1. Copy of a diploma to show completed Bachelor's or Master's studies, or confirmation of ongoing studies in the academic year that those studies will be completed; 2. Transcript of marks and academic results from previous higher education studies; 3. CV 4. Motivation letter Confirmation of studies may be substituted with a transcript of marks, provided that these are from the same academic year as the application. All documents which are not originally in Czech, Slovak or English must be accurately translated into English. Conditions for admission The admissions commission will will assess applicants for study on the basis of the documents submitted and give them a ranking from 1 -10 points. The point limit for accepting applicants is set by the Dean. A pre-condition for being accepted is the completion of higher education studies. Recommended literature, sample questions Although a background in mathematics is not formally required for admission, it is an advantage for IEPS applicants to have an aptitude for maths and statistics, especially those students who wish to specialise in economics and finance. All students must have a good command of the English language in order to successfully complete all of the course requirements, including the ability to discuss specialised topics. Information on the exercise of graduates A graduate of the IEPS should be able to reflect, using his/her acquired knowledge of the theoretical foundations, on the dynamics of changes of political-economic relations ongoing in international environment, brought by the current economical, political and social development open to the world. The theoretical basis should allow for an independent analytical research of economic and political issues in the international environment, including their critical analysis, for the purpose of the public or the private sectors. Graduates will be prepared to work in the banking and financial businesses, state administration, political parties, international institutions or in the private sector (for instance as consultants in multinational corporations). Theoretically oriented students can work as researchers or university instructors. [-]

Master in Economics, Finance and International Integration

University of Pavia
Campus 2 years October 2017 Italy Pavia

The <strong>Master Program (Laurea Magistralis) in Economics, Finance and International Integration (MEFI)</strong> is a post-graduate course open to Italian and foreign students aiming to pursue advanced studies in the field of applied economics and finance in an international perspective. [+]

The Master Program (Laurea Magistralis) in Economics, Finance and International Integration (MEFI) is a post-graduate course open to Italian and foreign students aiming to pursue advanced studies in the field of applied economics and finance in an international perspective. MEFI trains students longing to start high level careers as professionals or managers in national and multinational firms and within the Public Administration. Starting from the academic year 2013-2014 this Master Program will be entirely taught in English, fulfilling the internalization aims of our Department. The Department is already involved in many international mobility programs for graduate students. Moreover a few double degree programs in Economics have been already agreed and are being carried out with some major European Universities. The decision to teach all MEFI courses in English is then just a further path in our internalization strategy. Though students attending MEFi will get the same degree, they may choose from the start between three different specializations: Finance; Industrial Organization and Market Strategies; International Economic Integration. Such a variety of academic options is consistent with the existence in our Department of different groups of researchers sharing common scientific interests, publishing extensively on these topics and occasionally working as consultants for private and public institutions. The Finance curriculum has been developed by a group of mathematicians, statisticians and econometricians who have long since concentrated their research work on financial markets. They also cooperate with colleagues involved in macroeconomics and corporate finance. The Industrial Organization and Market Strategies curriculum is based as well on a group of professors and researchers long since involved in research work about theoretical and empirical industrial organization, regulatory economics and competition policy. A third curriculum concerning International Economic Integration is also available, as the University of Pavia is a leading academic institution for post-graduate education in the field of international cooperation and economic development. MEFI is expected to be completed in two years and is divided into 4 semesters. Teaching time is mostly devoted to advanced courses of economics with an applied perspective. In the case of the Industrial Organization option the focus is on the applications of game theory and econometrics to regulated and unregulated markets, and on the microeconomics of the firm. The Finance option includes courses of mathematics, statistics and econometrics with a common focus on financial markets issues. The International Integration option requires less training in mathematics and statistics, as more weight is given to political economy and international policy issues. Students interested in sustainable development, independently of their specialization, may always pick up environmental economics and energy economics as elective courses. Complementary courses in Law have also been introduced. They are differentiated according to each specialization and include financial markets regulation, European Community Law and Antitrust law. Management courses mainly concern multinational firms and the organization of information systems. Following the Italian multicultural tradition, students may be also required to attend one course in Economic History and/or one in Sociology. Most courses require students to undertake individual short projects or produce short essays to be discussed during the class and that may contribute to their assessment together with traditional exams. Lastly students will have to write and defend a Master program dissertation that will contribute to their final grade. [-]

Master Program - Macroeconomic Policy and Financial Markets

 

Policymakers are often forced to make decisions under conditions of uncertainty that have a direct impact on a country’s overall performance. A thorough understanding of the dynamics of the aggregate economy is necessary, but not entirely sufficient, for success. Private firms must also be knowledgeable of the many sources of aggregate risk and uncertainty, and the analytical tools available to study the aggregate economy can be of much help.

Students in the Macroeconomic Policy and Financial Markets Program will obtain relevant knowledge about the central issues in macroeconomic and financial economics analysis, as well as the key tools, data and models.... [-]
