Leerdoelen The course provides state-of-the-art knowledge on Finance and Corporate Finance within the broad context of economics. The student is trained to be a critical consumer of relevant literature on these topics.
Omschrijving The course consists of lectures on important topics in contemporary financial economics and illustrates how financial problems can be solved with mathematical methods in general or with methods from econometrics and operations research in particular. An illustrative problem is the correct determination of CEO remuneration and the formalization of such a governance issue in a mathematical model. The course can be followed separately from Finance 1, as it partly deals with different topics, and, though the two courses can be followed separately. In fact, the course aims at dealing with topics that are not dealt with in Finance 1, or takes a more thorough approach in the analysis of certain topics that are discussed in Finance 1. The focus on the course may vary slightly per year, depending on current financial issues of interest.
