Lernergebnisse (Learning Outcomes)

This course intends to give you an understanding in portfolio management. Especially the diversification principle and the separation between market risk and unique risk shall be internalised. On this basis, you will be made familiar with the CAPM which in good practice is used to derive the cost of capital, acting as a discount rate in stock valuation, capital budgeting or modern business valuation. You will be provided with important concepts both for personal and for corporate application. Special emphasis is put on the practical implementation and application of the concepts. Techniques will be developed to solve practical financial problems. You will learn how to use the EXCEL Solver (with and without constraints) to solve practical problems.

Regelung zur Anwesenheit

For this lecture participation is obligatory. Students are allowed to miss a maximum of 30%.


Based on an explanation of the underlying theoretical concept, small practical problems ("examples") are solved. When useful, examples are interpreted from an economic point of view. At the end of each lecture day, mandatory homework exercises will be announced to be handed in at the beginning of the next lecture day. Moreover, the course includes many optional homework exercises, that enable the students to test their knowledge. Some of the examples and exercises are linked in a case study like manner to provide more insight into existing cross links. To further link knowledge acquired in the individual examples, optional case studies represent more complex situations where knowledge has to be transferred from small examples to a comprehensive real world problem (i.e. the students have to put the pieces together). Enough room will be reserved for enrichment by means of newspaper material, journal articles, software screen shots and so on as well as for class discussions.
