While bonds and stocks are basic securities, there are many securities derived from them. The most important so-called derivative is a financial option. This course focuses on these options and their valuation. Students will learn what financial options are and which factors affect option prices. Based on these insights, students will acquire methods to value financial options such as the Binomial Option Pricing Model and the Black Scholes formula. Students will transfer this knowledge to real options, which are rights to make particular business decisions and are tied to capital budgeting. Real options are usually not traded in competitive markets and thus do not have market prices. In order to analyze them, students will apply decision trees and will learn several rules of thumb for a quick evaluation.

This lecture is especially available for incoming foreign students at the University of Augsburg. Anyone who is currently enrolled as an exchange student at the University of Augsburg is encouraged to attend this lecture.

This class is held entirely in English.
