Risk Management Roundup WS 2018

General Remarks

Relevant information and downloads will be made available via moodle.

We will meet in the beginning of the term. There will be a lecture-style session, in which we cover some topics from finance and business ethics. The students are supposed to study the Financial Risk Manager Handbook on their own. Participants will give presentations on topics assigned in the term. A written exam concludes the course.

This is a core course of the MSc Finance program. Students from other degree programs are welcome to attend the lecture sessions (room capacity permitting). It is not possible to substitute this course for a seminar.
