Learning outcomes

The goal of the lecture is to present the theoretical foundations and the models employed by financial institutions to manage different sources of financial risk. A particular focus will be put on numerical methods (Monte Carlo simulations) and their implementation using modern IT-Tools (Java, Eclipse).


Part 1: Monte Carlo Methods Basic notions: expectation, Lp spaces, classical inequalities (Markov, Chebychev etc...) Classical numerical integration Monte Carlo integration (code) Generation of random draws and discretization of stochastic processes (code) Variance reduction techniques (code)

Part 2: Market Risk Introduction: IR, Equity, FX, Commodities, Options Risk Measures: general theory VaR/ES calculation

  1. Historical approach (code)
  2. Analytical approach
  3. Monte Carlo simulations (code)

Optional: Basel II regulations

Part 3: Credit Risk Basic risks in a default-free setting: duration and convexity Structural Models Rating based models Reduced form models Optional: Basel II regulations

Part 4: Counterparty Credit Risk Funding and collateral (xVA) CVA DVA FVA Monte Carlo for xVA (code) Optional: Basel III/Basel IV regulations


  1. A good working knowledge of mathematical analysis (limits/derivatives/integration). The ability to solve standard first and second order equations/inequations.
  2. A good working knowledge of basic statistics (probability distributions, conditional probabilities, random variables, central limit theorem, law of large numbers, statistical tests, conditional/unconditional expected values/moments).
  3. Programming: the lecture does not assume that students are experienced Java programmers, anyway attendance of the block-lecture Introduction to Java Programming, offered before the lectures starts, is recommended. It is assumed that students are able to write simple programs in any language such as Matlab, Python, Visual Basic, Turbo Pascal etc. In summary, it is assumed that students are able to think in an algorithmic way, independently of any programming language. Practical tutorials for the Java programming language will be provided.

Examination Methods

The exam consists of two parts: the first is a Project Work that has to be completed by using the Java programming language. The mark on the project work has a weight of 30% on the final grade.

The Project Work can be completed by groups consisting of up to 4 people.

Aims of the project work are:

implement and deepen the understanding of the methods illustrated during the lecture.
improve the ability to work in teams.

The grade of the project work is valid for all written exams during the current academic year and for the first two examinations of the next academic year.

Students get access to the written exam only if the project work has a positive valuation. Those who do not submit any solution will not be accepted to the exam.

The second part of the exam consists of a written exam on all topics of the lecture. The exam contain theoretical and practical exercises together with programming questions related to the Java programming language. In case the grade is greater or equal to 18, the written exam has a weight of 70% on the final mark.

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 dal Consiglio della Scuola di Economia e Management 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.

ATTENZIONE: Per essere ammessi a sostenere una qualsiasi attività didattica, inlcuse 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.
