Advanced Financial Theory

The overall aim of the course is to advance students understanding in financial theory, and to facilitate the application of financial theory to enable students to read and think critically and creatively about financial issues.

The course will provide a thorough understanding of main advances in the central concepts of financial theory. The course is designed for those with demonstrated finance skills who wish to deepen their knowledge of finance and develop a specialization in one or more sub-disciplines of finance. The course also provides an appropriate foundation for students intending to proceed to the PhD program in Finance.

This course covers three topics in finance: Behavioral Finance, Corporate finance, and Asset Pricing. The students work in smaller groups and choose to write a research proposal within one of the topics. The course activities include reading, reflection, and discussion of academic articles, the formulation of research ideas and the writing of a research proposal.
