Risk Management Roundup WS 2022

General Remarks

The course has several parts:

(i) We will meet in October 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 are available on Moodle.

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.
