Who should attend

This course is designed to junior financial market dealers, early career corporate and bank treasurers, as well as operations staff (including IT) or other financial professionals.

Junior financial professionals, after their graduation in a finance or a business related topic, have gained first experience in the financial markets on the job already and are working in specific areas with dedicated tasks.

The course gives them the opportunity and time to get away from all-day routines and go back - in a very condensed way - to the school/university desk, refresh and deepen their knowledge and understand financial markets from a holistic fundamental view building upon their already gained experience.

About the course

Although the course has an academic and quantitative foundation it is practical orientated with many interactive (often excel based) exercises and case studies based on real market events. After finishing the course the students should have gained a deep and long lasting knowledge of some of the most fundamental principles in finance from which they will benefit throughout their entire career.

Students can benefit from more time between the sessions to digest the content between the modules. Exercises will be given as homework task after each module which helps the students to review the content and test their comprehension of the discussed topics.
