This course introduces the basic concepts of financial derivatives. The focus is on futures, forwards, options and swaps. Topics include no-arbitrage pricing, hedging, risk neutral probabilities and the binomial tree model. Emphasis is placed on the mathematical context for the discrete probabilistic models used in the analysis of derivative securities. The theory is illustrated through numerical examples, which are relevant for understanding the pricing and hedging mechanisms involved in the real world financial applications.

The Business Models New Paradigms seminar examines how organizations create a value proposition and organize a profit formula in a global environment. In essence, a business model involves the allocation of critical resources and competences in a competitive environment over relatively long periods of time in the pursuit of the creation of value for customers and the capture of the value thus created. Business models are influenced by many factors such as the resources available to management, the industry and the competitive conditions, and of course the firm’s internal structure, systems, and culture. The seminar will cover the major business model decision-making tools. Particular attention is paid to processes, competencies, competitive positioning and comparative costs that drive value creation. Topics such as two-sided markets, free to fee businesses, ecosystems, network externalities, and servicization are also addressed. Participants will learn to assess why and how new and emerging business models develop in a variety of contexts (industries, countries). They will learn how to use methods to explore and exploit breakthrough business models.

This course covers a number of topics in Data Science, that will combine both theoretical and practical approaches. The goal of the course is, on one hand, to understand at a high level the mathematical foundations behind some of the state-of-the-art algorithms for a wide range of tasks including organization and visualization of data clouds, dimensionality reduction, network analysis, clustering, classification, and ranking. On the other hand, students will be exposed to numerous practical examples drawn from a wide range of topics including finance, statistics, and social network analysis.

Innovation and creativity are the key drivers of success in many industries today. They fuel the uptake of new technologies, the development of products and services and the formulation of strategies to secure competitive advantage. Truly innovative ideas can create new markets and boost a firm’s value or even transform its entire business model. But how do you propagate a culture of innovation? How do you tell which creative ideas are right for an organization? And how do you manage them effectively? The aim of the course is to introduce the main concepts of innovation management enabling the understanding of innovation processes and the role of creativity within them. After the course, students will be able to apply the basics of design thinking and to identify, analyse and explain an effective, creative concept leading to an innovation success.
