Examination Methods

This course will be assessed with a written examination which will include open questions on the theory and some exercises. This exam will test for: (a) the accurate and thorough understanding of the concepts, methods, and models in the course, (b) ability to use these theoretical tools to answer financial practical questions.
Students can also prepare an optional project work (alone or in small groups) concerning the main topics of the Course, and submit it before the end of the Course; in this way they might obtain up to two additional marks in the final examination, based on the assessment of this project work.
