Instruction Type: Lecture/Discussion

Effective risk management is essential in today's uncertain business environment. Derivatives are standard instruments for managing financial risk with more than 90% of the Fortune 500 companies using fixed income derivatives to manage interest rate risk exposure. Thus, this course develops tools for valuing and modeling an organization's risk exposures, and it explores key issues in fixed income, financial engineering, and risk management. The sources of risk information are examined, business risks are analyzed, and the alternative methods of handling risks evaluated. Criteria for selection of proper insurance coverage and selection of carriers and intermediaries are also reviewed.

Elective for both Mgmt. and Finance concentrations.
