This class was tough.
Course Overview:
It's a required course for all commerce students but if I had a choice, I would not recommend this course to students who are not strong in economics and basic statistics, however, this class allows formula sheets on the exam, so I would recommend this course to those who are more adaptable to the use of formulas.
Course highlights:
Present value concepts, mortgage payments, annuity, perpetuity, growth, effective rates, forward rate, efficient model hypothesis, arbitrage, arbitrage portfolio theory, capital asset pricing model, market portfolio theory, expected returns, pricing of stocks and bonds or securities, minimum variance portfolio, volatility of securities, basic statistic principles

3-5 hours
Advice for students:
Attend lectures since it will help in answering questions and having in-class examples that will help with assignments, do practice tests and questions, do assignments, work in groups.
This class was tough.
