This is an upper level elective and will cover some technically challenging material. The course is broken into four parts. In part one, after a basic overview of the financial markets; we will cover discounting and time-value-of-money concepts. We will then turn to asset valuation focusing on stocks and bonds. Part two continues asset valuation focusing on derivative securities including forwards, futures, swaps and options. In part three we discuss risk and return as we explore concepts such as the Efficient Markets Hypothesis and models such as the Capital Asset Pricing Model. We will also discuss behavioral finance and the recent financial crisis. Finally, in part four we will turn to corporate finance where we focus on the decisions facing a company concerning leverage, dividends and which projects to pursue. Throughout the course we will seek to balance the practical and mechanical aspects with the more theoretical economic underpinnings. Learning Outcomes
