SECS-S/06 - MATHEMATICAL METHODS OF ECONOMICS, FINANCE AND ACTUARIAL SCIENCES

Period

Primo semestre (lauree magistrali) dal Oct 3, 2022 al Dec 23, 2022.

Learning objectives

The course aims at providing the student with tools for the financial portfolio managing of companies operating in international markets. In particular the course will focus on: some basic concepts of the financial markets and specific features characterizing the international markets; some mathematical tools for capturing crucial relations among different financial instruments, with applications to risk hedging and to investments planning; some software tools for supporting the decision process. At the end of the course, the student should have to be aware of concepts which are fundamental for companies investing or seeking funding on international markets. For example she should have understood: the relationships between interest rates and exchange rates; the functioning of some derivatives on such rates; the types of risk inherent in domestic and foreign bonds and in the evaluation and management of an international company. Furthermore, the student should have to be able to apply principles and criteria, and to use mathematical and software tools for the assessment and the choice of financial opportunities.

Didactic methods

ORGANIZATION OF TEACHING ACTIVITIES: lessons, exercises, quizzes during the course

Learning assessment procedures

The exam consists of a series of 3 quizzes assigned during the course and a written test after the end of the course. The quizzes average grade can give a bonus which can reach 4.5 points and is added to the mark of the written test. Also an oral examination could be compulsory, in case the teacher needs for specific insights.
The written test and the quizzes contain both practical exercises and theoretical questions. Each quiz will focus on a specific part of the program, while the written test covers the whole program of the course. During the carrying out of the quizzes and the written test it is not allowed to use notes or other didactic material.
The exam is passed if the final exam grade is at least 18/30.
Further details about the exam will be provided on the course moodle page.
Students not attending the lectures: the examination methods are not differentiated between attending and non-attending students.

Evaluation criteria

Characteristics of the expected performance. The student is required to demonstrate a critical and in-depth knowledge of the topics covered in the course. The concepts must not be exposed mechanically but in a reasoned way, the student is expected to be able to recognize when the use of a formula obtained for a basic case is not appropriate. Connections among different parts of the program may be required and new exercises can be proposed.
The concise but comprehensive exposure, the rigor, the direct pointing towards the core of the matter will be particularly appreciated. Vague, inaccurate, poorly justified or incorrect answers will be penalized

Criteria for the composition of the final grade

The final exam mark is awarded considering the outcome of the final written test and adding the possible bonus accumulated with the quizzes.
In case the teacher calls also to an oral exam, the mark may become insufficient if inconsistencies are found with what is written in the final test. The mark score may increase if parts of exercises have not been evaluated for doubt of interpretation.
Requests for further questions to increase the score are not accepted.

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.

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


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.

Internships


Double degree

To contribute to the internationalization of the experience of students enrolled in the MSc in IEB, Double Degree agreements have been activated with the University of Bordeaux (FR) and with the University of Bamberg (D). Each agreement provides for the participation of a maximum of five students, therefore a total of (maximum) ten students can benefit from the experience.

Bordeaux 
Students selected for the Double Degree program with Bordeaux will spend the first semester of the second year at the partner university, during which they will participate in the Master Mention “Economie Internationale” - Parcours “Economie, banque et finance internationales”. Students will attend the  following courses in France (on the right the equivalent courses of the MSc in IEB):
Import/Export Techniques 8ECTS <---> International business law 9CFU
Growth and Development 7ECTS <---> International trade and economic development 9CFU 
International Trade and FDI 8ECTS <---> Export decisions, FDI, and global value chains 9CFU 
Strategic Analysis and Applications 7ECTS <---> Stage 3CFU 

Bamberg
Students selected for the Double Degree program with Bamberg, on the other hand, will participate in the Master of Science in European Economic Studies program, where they will attend the following courses:
- One course to be chosen in the MAEES1 Methods and Fundamentals module group:
Modul MAEES1.1 Advanced Microeconomics 6 ECTS
Modul MAEES1.2 Advanced Macroeconomics 6 ECTS
- Three courses (18 ECTS) with modules of the module groups MAEES Specialisation (of 6 ECTS each):
MAEES3 Internationale Wirtschaft (International Economics)
MAEES4 Empirische Mikroökonomik (Empirical Microeconomics)
MAEES5 Finanzwissenschaft (Public Economics)
MAEES7 Wirtschaftstheorie (Economic Theory)
MAEES8 Angewandte Wirtschaftsforschung (Applied Economic Research)
- 12 ECTS among the following Foreign Business Languages at master level:
German (for not German native speakers)
Business English
Business French
Business Italian (for not Italian native speakers)
Business Spanish
Business Russian
- 24 ECTS for thesis completion.

Requirements and selection procedure
Students regularly enrolled in the first year of the MSc in IEB can be admitted to the Double Degree programs. The call for applications will be published around September 2021 or later in the University web page on double degrees. The choice of students to be admitted is made during the first semester of the first year, through a multi-stage process:
- a selection of students based on the results achieved in their bachelor degree, on their CV and on a motivational interview. Following this selection, the ranking of students "admitted under condition" will be published;
- an ongoing confirmation of the above ranking, based on the academic achievement of the students in the first part of their studies at the University of Verona. Specifically, are confirmed the students "admitted under condition" which - at the end of the first semester of the first year - have achieved a weighted average score and a number of credits not lower than the average of the cohort of students enrolled in the first year (in the case of students’ transfers and career shortening, only the recognized exams for the first semester of the first year are taken into consideration).
The ranking of selected and confirmed students will be unique and the choice of destination - Bamberg or Bordeaux - will be made starting with the first classified student, then the second and so on.
Finally, the students selected and confirmed will participate in the call to obtain the Erasmus scholarships reserved for the assigned location.
