NBA 5420

Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2014-2015.

This course emphasizes both conceptual foundations and practical implementation. The material in the course would be helpful to anyone interested in investing. However, the course should be especially useful to students interested in an investment management career (e.g., portfolio management in mutual funds and hedge funds, equity research, equity trading, risk management, investment consulting, and investment banking). The first part of the course is an extensive module on strategic asset allocation with a focus on practical implementation. The second part of the course deals with security selection, with a particular focus on screening and multi-factor models. The course highlights trends in the investment management industry and introduces terminology and tools familiar to investment professionals.

When Offered Spring.

Prerequisites/Corequisites Prerequisite: NCC 5060, NCC 5560, or an equivalent core finance course.
