The objective is to provide students with the principles guiding the analysis of investments in the various activities of the wine-production sector. The teaching is developed from the teaching of the principal topics in financial maths (simple and compounded interest, discounting, present value calculation of different capital flows, periodicities, and capitalisation). Each of the topics is contextualised to the wine-production sector (hanging fruit valuation, vineyard cycle, circulating capital, etc.). The course proceeds with the introduction to the concepts of risk and uncertainty in the returns from investments in the firm and outside the firm, to diversify risk. Various risk profiles from investment and portfolio composition techniques are discussed for various forms of wine-production firms, depending on the output market, production structure, and forms of competition. Students will be exposed to a review of the various financial products (shares, bonds, and securities) focussing on the difference between market and subjective valuations. Rural estate appraisal concepts will also be covered, such as market value and its determinants, change value and substitute value.

The University of Verona, through a network of agreements with foreign universities, offers international courses that enable students to gain a Double/Joint degree at the time of graduation. Indeed, students enrolled in a Double/Joint degree programme will be able to obtain both the degree of the University of Verona and the degree issued by the Partner University abroad - where they are expected to attend part of the programme -, in the time it normally takes to gain a common Master’s degree. The institutions concerned shall ensure that both degrees are recognised in the two countries.
Places on these programmes are limited, and admissions and any applicable grants are subject to applicants being selected in a specific Call for applications.
