Metodi didattici
  • Although the course is based on a theoretical approach, lessons will be followed by
    practical classes in which case studies and practical exercises will be discussed.
Modalità di valutazione
  • The final exam is written and covers all the three sections of this course. Specifically, it
    will include multiple choice questions, one open question and practical exercises. Multiple
    choice questions are aimed to assess the level of understanding of the theory; open
    question is devoted to test the ability to discuss issues on managing risks and practical
    exercises are intended to evaluate the individual ability to put in practice theoretical
    concepts of financial risk management.
    Students attending the course are also required to discuss a case study. The case study is
    expected to be addressed in group. Assigned cases are intended to give students practice in
    assembling data to support a decision. Each group is expected to hand-in a power-point
    presentation and any additional files the day before class presentation.

    The final mark will be calculated as the average between the written exam's score and the
    case study discussion's score.
