Experiments in Developing Countries: Methods and Applications

In this course we will discuss important aspects of experimental design in the context of development projects. Special attention will be given to microfinance projects. The aim is to provide a better understanding of the theory and practice of field experiments in developing countries. Students will learn how to design randomized experiments, quasi-experiments and so-called lab-in-the-field games. We will also explain how to analyse the data and interpret the findings.

Financial Inclusion and Sustainable Growth: Recent Developments

This course discusses the major developments regarding research on financial inclusion, including microfinance. It will shed much light on how financial inclusion can induce sustainable growth in low-income economies, with explicit attention to African countries.

The course contains interactive lectures by the organisers from the University of Groningen (Netherlands), Université Laval(Canada), and Stellenbosch University (South Africa), as well as some guest speakers. Ample attention will be given to group discussions.  

Financial Modeling in Excel

Deze cursus is speciaal ontwikkeld voor financiële expert die in hun dagelijks werk veel financiële modelen bouwen of gaan bouwen in Excel. In de pratkijk wordt Excel vaak gebruikt voor het modeleren van verschillende financiële vraagstukken, zoals het waarderen van ondernemingen of projecten, optimalisatie van beleggingsportefeuilles, het berekenen van risico, optiewaardeering, en Monte Carlo simulaties. Excel is een buitengewoon flexible tool en kan concureren met meer formele programmeer omgevingen zoals MATLAB, R, etc..). Van belang is dan wel dat men meer gebruik maakt van de geavanceerde mogelijkheden van Excel. Deze mogelijkheden zijn vaak helemaal niet moeilijk om te gebruiken, maar vereisen wel enige kennismaking en oefening.

Quantitative Finance

This course provides an advanced treatment of the most important concepts in financial engineering. The course puts emphasis on the mathematical translation of concepts like risk, riskless profit, derivative, tradable, in continuous time. Both derivative pricing as well as stochastic optimal control used in solving dynamic portfolio problems are introduced. Basic applications of the theory will also be dealt with and the practical applicability will be highlighted. The course is based on the book Arbitrage Theory in Continuous Time by Thomas Björk.
