Course Description and Learning Objectives:
The main purpose of this course is to understand concepts, principles, and tools for the analysis and valuation of derivative securities such as Forwards, Futures, Swaps, and Options, which are being applied in modern corporate finance, investments, and risk management for financial institutions and enterprises. Students also will learn the application of these derivatives for financial and enterprise risk management and decision making.
Career relevance:
The basic knowledge of derivatives is necessary to understand modern finance and modern corporate management in both financial and non-financial institutions. The knowledge would be useful for managers of financial product development, fund managers, and analysts in financial institutions. The knowledge would also be useful for financial officers and risk management officers in various enterprises. Application of derivatives such as real options is also useful for managers who are decision makers. You will find how the tools and concepts are useful more broadly in finance and corporate management.
Course Context or Rationalization:
Knowledge and skills related to derivative securities would allow you to pursue many goals, which cannot be achieved only through the study of traditional securities, in investments, risk management, and management of corporations. In other words, you will extend your
knowledge of corporate finance, investments, and portfolio management into the advanced stage. This course requires basic knowledge of traditional securities such as stocks and bonds, and corporate finance, although there is no specific prerequisite course. Additionally, the derivatives market aims to provide the basic knowledge and skill in order to understand Debt Security Market (FIN4300) and Risk Management (FIN4200). Securitization, which will be taught 2 in Debt Security Market, is a sophisticated type of derivatives. Also derivatives are widely used in order to achieve both financial and enterprise risk management. Understanding the pricing of derivatives also helps to understand the insurance pricing.
Delivery methods:
Course materials consist of cases, book chapters, and various articles, exercise problem sets and homework assignments, and a final examination at the end of the term. The final is a take-home examination. Most course work is quantitative. The level of students understanding will be checked by means of case analysis, assignments, and scheduled presentations throughout the term. Full preparation and attendance are both required for all of the scheduled sessions in this course. All students are expected to be actively involved in class discussion, especially, in case discussion.

When I published the first academic study in the world about Facebook and marketing (in 2007) I had no idea that social media marketing could have gotten this big. In the past 7 years, the world has transformed a lot and social media became one of the most important components of modern marketing. In this class, we will talk about how social media changes the lives of consumers, how corporate strategy and content strategy influence each other and how use, nonuse or misuse of social media may change the destiny of big brands.
