Students learn how to value assets and businesses given forecasts of future cash flows. The course also concentrates on the risk characteristics of different asset classes. The first part of the course focuses on stocks, bonds and interest rates. The second part of the course deals with measuring and pricing risk. The third part of the course introduces students to valuation. The final part of the course introduces students to derivative instruments. This course will combine the theoretical underpinnings of finance with real-world examples, including several case discussions. A concurrent goal of this course is to get students interested in finance and encourage them to take elective courses in finance (there is a large offering of finance electives at Haas.) We will review Spring finance electives towards the end of the semester.
