With the discussion of research format, methodologies and topics, this course aims at developing students with critical thinking skills that enable them to efficiently identify, comprehend, and research financial problems. Students will complete this course with a research proposal, which will serve as the guideline for conducting their master theses. Pre-requisite: Statistics and Financial Econometrics Theory of Finance The course aims to provide students with solid theoretical frameworks in asset pricing, corporate finance, and other fields of finance. For asset pricing, the concepts of risk and return, and state prices will be introduced as a stepping stone towards the discussions of

2 more advanced topics including the Capital Asset Pricing Model (CAPM), the Arbitrage Pricing Theory (APT), and other more recent asset pricing models. For corporate finance, agency problems are analyzed in capital investments, securities offerings, and capital structure decisions. Other topics in finance such as banking and option pricing may also be covered on an optional basis. Besides the theoretical frameworks, recent developments in empirical asset pricing and empirical corporate finance will also be covered with an extensive use of academic research papers. Pre-requisite: Principles of Accounting Statistics and Financial Econometrics This course introduces the basic tools with the aid of data for decision making in finance. It covers introductory probability, decision analysis, basic statistics, regression, simulation, linear and nonlinear optimization, and discrete optimization. Computer Programming exercises, cases, and examples, deliver in SAS (by the SAS Institute Inc.) are drawn from asset pricing, market microstructure, derivatives, and other functions. Principle of Accounting The course will promote the students development of a functional knowledge of accounting information and procedures.
