CAS Financial Markets - E-Learning course - next start in February 2018
The e-learning course encompasses the most important concepts of financial markets theory. Financial markets theory is particularly suited for an e-learning course because information technology has always played an important role in this field. For example, Markowitz's portfolio theory from the 1950's was not implemented until a decade later when computers became available that had the capacity to deal with the required amount of input data. It is imperative that students of financial markets theory are able to solve mathematical, statistical and simple econometric problems in addition to mastering the theoretical concepts. A virtual course is an ideal solution that allows students to work through the course contents individually and interactively.
