Type D and Type F activities

Nei piani didattici di ciascun Corso di studio è previsto l’obbligo di conseguire un certo numero di crediti formativi mediante attività a scelta (chiamate anche "di tipologia D e F").

Oltre che in insegnamenti previsti nei piani didattici di altri corsi di studio e in certificazioni linguistiche o informatiche secondo quanto specificato nei regolamenti di ciascun corso, tali attività possono consistere anche in iniziative extracurriculari di contenuto vario, quali ad esempio la partecipazione a un seminario o a un ciclo di seminari, la frequenza di laboratori didattici, lo svolgimento di project work, stage aggiuntivo, eccetera.

Come per ogni altra attività a scelta, è necessario che anche queste non costituiscano un duplicato di conoscenze e competenze già acquisite dallo studente.

Quelle elencate in questa pagina sono le iniziative extracurriculari che sono state approvate dalla Commissione didattica e quindi consentono a chi vi partecipa l'acquisizione dei CFU specificati, alle condizioni riportate nelle pagine di dettaglio di ciascuna iniziativa.

Si ricorda in proposito che:
- tutte queste iniziative richiedono, per l'acquisizione dei relativi CFU, il superamento di una prova di verifica delle competenze acquisite, secondo le indicazioni contenute nella sezione "Modalità d'esame" della singola attività;
- lo studente è tenuto a inserire nel proprio piano degli studi l'attività prescelta e a iscriversi all'appello appositamente creato per la verbalizzazione, la cui data viene stabilita dal docente di riferimento e pubblicata nella sezione "Modalità d'esame" della singola attività.
 

COMPETENZE TRASVERSALI

 

Scopri i percorsi formativi promossi dal  Teaching and learning centre dell'Ateneo, destinati agli studenti iscritti ai corsi di laurea, volti alla promozione delle competenze trasversali: https://talc.univr.it/it/competenze-trasversali

 

CONTAMINATION LAB

Il Contamination Lab Verona (CLab Verona) è un percorso esperienziale con moduli dedicati all'innovazione e alla cultura d'impresa che offre la possibilità di lavorare in team con studenti e studentesse di tutti i corsi di studio per risolvere sfide lanciate da aziende ed enti. Il percorso permette di ricevere 6 CFU in ambito D o F. Scopri le sfide: https://www.univr.it/clabverona

 

ATTENZIONE: Per essere ammessi a sostenere una qualsiasi attività didattica, incluse quelle a scelta, è necessario essere iscritti all'anno di corso in cui essa viene offerta. Si raccomanda, pertanto, ai laureandi delle sessioni di dicembre e aprile di NON svolgere attività extracurriculari del nuovo anno accademico, cui loro non risultano iscritti, essendo tali sessioni di laurea con validità riferita all'anno accademico precedente. Quindi, per attività svolte in un anno accademico cui non si è iscritti, non si potrà dar luogo a riconoscimento di CFU.

Learning objectives

The aim of this course is to introduce students to the econometric models for financial markets and their application to modelling and forecasting data from financial time series. The course discusses the empirical analysis of financial models (CAPM, Fama-French) and the empirical assessment of portfolio efficiency. It also pays special attention to modelling and forecasting of returns and volatility.

At the end of the course the student is expected to (a) have solid knowledge of the basic topics in financial econometrics; (b) understand and use concepts and expressions commonly used in the econometric analysis of financial markets; (c) perform empirical applications using financial data and econometric techniques; (d) interpret results from empirical applications developed by others.

Prerequisites and basic notions

Working knowledge of basic mathematics and statistics is recommended.

Didactic methods

Frontal teaching. Lectures include real examples interactively developed using the data management free software R.

Learning assessment procedures

The exam is made of one written essay and one individual homework. No oral integration is planned.
The written essay lasts one hour and thirty minutes and covers the whole program of the course. Use of handheld calculators is allowed, but use of personal notes or other teaching material is not allowed.
The homework is developed individually, and can be of two types (Homework I or Homework II). Homework I aims to develop analytical skills through personal data analysis. Homework II aims to develop critical skills with respect to empirical applications. Each student can choose which type of homework to deliver, but must deliver one of them. Once the deadline for delivery of Homework I has expired, it is possible to deliver Homework II only. The homework has to be delivered before taking part in the written essay; its grade remains valid throughout the academic year.

Students with disabilities or specific learning disorders (SLD), who intend to request the adaptation of the exam, must follow the instructions given HERE

Evaluation criteria

The written essay evaluates general understanding of the main econometric topics and the ability to understand and interpret tables reporting econometric output. The homeworks ascertain the ability to develop empirical research through personal elaboration (Homework I) or to critically comment empirical research developed by others (Homework II).

Criteria for the composition of the final grade

The final grade is given by the average of the grades in the essay and the homework, with 80% and 20% weights respectively. In order to pass the exam, it is necessary to obtain a grade not below 18/30 in the written essay. Students can separately reject the essay grade and the homework grade. However, the homework grade can be rejected only once.
