Contenu du cours

This course teaches decision-making skills required of managers with varying financial responsibilities in a company (industrial company, or financial company). The course is divided in two sections.
Section 1 consists in presentations by professionals in the finance industry. Through these presentations, students acquire a broader knowledge of jobs in the finance industry, sove case studies, and make practical financial decisions.
Section 2 complements Section 1 and is based on a business game implemented in both subtracks, i.e. Asset and Risk Management (ARM) and Corporate Finance (CF). In the ARM subtrack, students are managers of a bank and should take investment decisions to well anticipate and manage the risks associated to a financial institution and end up with the most profitable business for shareholders. FinGame 5.0 is used in the CF subtrack and is a comprehensive multiple-period finance case/simulation. Students play a decision-making role in a hypothetical company over numerous periods of operation by controlling major financial and operating decisions in the company. Students support each decision with a sound finance theory and thereby develop and enhance skills in financial management, financial accounting statement analysis, and general decision making.
