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. Students learn how to improve decision-making from using data analytics, and also how to recognize and avoid pitfalls of complex data analysis (e.g., data mining, measurement problems, sampling error, and model misspecification).

If you have more than 2 years of full-time, post-graduate work experience, please contact the admissions office to talk about how your unique situation fits our admissions criteria.

Academic Aptitude & Quantitative Proficiency The MMS: Duke Kunshan academic environment is rigorous, fast-paced and requires strong quantitative and analytical skills. We utilize standardized test scores, transcripts and any applicable work experience to ensure that our admitted students will be successful in the program. The Admissions Committee pays particular attention to the quantitative segment of your test score to ensure that you can handle the rigor of the program. There are no prerequisite courses for the program, but if you do not have a strong quantitative background, we recommend that you take courses such as statistics, calculus or finance. This will provide another measure of your quantitative ability. Professional Experience & Career Potential Our admissions criteria does not indicate a required minimum work experience; however, you should have no more than two years of full-time, post-graduate work experience. We evaluate paid and unpaid work engagements — including volunteer positions, part-time work, student clubs and activities, and internships — to provide insight into your initiative, experience working in a team environment, and other skills that would translate well into potential career paths after the MMS: Duke Kunshan program. Reflect on your experiences and ensure that they are well-represented in your application. How have they helped you mature and develop leadership and teamwork skills? How will they enable you to be an active contributor to the learning environment? How will you leverage your experiences to achieve your career goals?
