Risk Management Roundup WS 2021

General Remarks

The course has several parts:

(i) We will meet online in November for a lecture-style session, in which we cover some topics from finance and business ethics.

(ii) In January, participants will give presentations on topics assigned in November. A successful presentation is a prerequisite for the exam.

(iii) Through self-study based on the literature we recommend, participants prepare for the written exam that concludes the course.

More relevant information and downloads will be made available via Moodle by the end of October.

This is a core course of the MSc Finance program. Students from other degree programs cannot take the exam. It is not possible to substitute this course for a seminar.
