Teaching methods

The course is organized in lectures and case studies.

During the lectures, the fundamentals of the discipline will be presented, as well as the main events that characterize financial markets, developing a dialogue between theory and practice.

Case studies will be defined for grups of students. The calendar and and the type of cases will be defined during the course.

Assessment and Evaluation

The course consists in group works that will be presented during the first lessons of the course. These group works provide for
the application of the theories presented in the course to business cases, and the discussion with the teacher of the results of the
analysis. Students taking the group works are not required to do the written exam.

Alternatively, the written exam consists of questions concerning the theories and cases presented in the course.

The two methods of examination provide the same level of commitment and are prepared in such a way as not to discriminate the outcomes depending on the mode chosen.

Further information

The exam rules are the same for both attending students and non-attending students.

Therefore non-attending students can also access group work, as long as they are able to share the activity with the students attending.

If this course will be taught remotely, or according to a blend-teaching mode, changes can be implemented with respect to what is stated in the syllabus, to make the course and exams available.
