FIN 5310 - Case Studies in Derivatives


The goal of this course is to learn how corporations use derivatives to manage risk. This involves identifying and quantifying the risks, selecting the appropriate tool for managing the risk, and implementing the decision. Risk management is only partly a quantitative field. Strategy, negotiation, marketing, and basic financial management are important as well. The course uses the case method. Each week students work in small groups to analyze a real-world problem and identify possible solutions.
