The core courses in the second semester of the Finance programme at the University of Mannheim, Graduate School of Economics and Social Science (GESS) represent the major subfields of Finance: Individual decision making under a neoclassical and behavioral view, investment-consumption decisions and asset pricing in continuous time, and theoretical and empirical corporate finance problems.
The course “Econometrics of Financial Markets” extends the common econometrics course to typical financial issues such as the estimation of dynamic market processes, testing asset pricing and market microstructure models, and designing event studies.
Finally, in both semesters students participate in the Finance research seminar series, which features regular presentations by renowned researchers from top universities around the world and allows to get in touch with cutting-edge research from the very first day.
