Description
This course is about the fundamental basics of financial engineering. First of all you will learn about stocks, bonds and other derivatives. The main reason of this course is to get a better understanding of mathematical models concerning the finance in the main.

First of all we have to consider bonds and bond pricing. Markowitz-model is the second step. Then Capital Asset Pricing Model (CAPM). One of the most elegant scientific discoveries in the 20th century is the Black-Scholes model and how to eliminate risk with hedging.

IMPORTANT: only take this course, if you are interested in statistics and mathematics !!!
