Über den Kurs

Financial Engineering is a multidisciplinary field involving finance and economics, mathematics, statistics, engineering and computational methods. The emphasis of FE & RM Part II will be on the use of simple stochastic models to (i) solve portfolio optimization problems (ii) price derivative securities in various asset classes including equities and credit and (iii) consider some advanced applications of financial engineering including algorithmic trading and the pricing of real options. We will also consider the role that financial engineering played during the financial crisis. We hope that students who complete the course and the prerequisite course (FE & RM Part I) will have a good understanding of the "rocket science" behind financial engineering. But perhaps more importantly, we hope they will also understand the limitations of this theory in practice and why financial models should always be treated with a healthy degree of skepticism....

I really enjoyed this course and learned a lot. The quizzes were challenging but really forced me to think through the problems. The forums were very helpful when I got stuck. Thanks Professors!

Great course structure. You get the chance to understand the mechanics around securities and derivatives valuation, as well as put in practice what you just have learnt by completing the exams.

Still a good presentation of the efficient frontier, the sharp ratio, CAPM, the greeks, ,delta hedging, and the volatility surface. I would have prefer to stick to this program and to go a bit more in depht on the remaining modules.

The topic is interesting. The professors provide little explanations beyond the Slides. Questions in Quices are some times confusing.

Poor explanation. Lots of technical details. And it uses Excel.....

The concepts delivered in the course need to be simplified. Derivations have been pasted on slides verbatim. The instructors can use their expertise to simplify concepts and explain them along with examples. Such effort on the part of the instructors is totally missing.

There's no way to get help in this course. I'm stuck on one of the quizzes -- probably just something easy that I've mis-read-- but there's no way to ask questions, so there's no way for me to complete the quiz. This is very frustrating!

No proof of many formula, some concepts should be introduced in more detail in order to make them fully comprehensible, e. g. LETF

Teacher doesn't explain the material, just reads from the slides. Forum doesn't work. Quizes questions are incorrect.

Answers to week 2 are wrong, no forum to discuss it, submitted a case over a month ago - still no reply.
