Resources for my students:
  • BFF5230 Global Financial Markets 2019s1: Notice that requisites have changed relative to 2018 and now students must be enrolled in courses B6001 (Master of Applied Economics and Econometrics) or B6003 (Master of Advanced Finance). Please check carefully the requirements and contact the appropriate faculty desk for clarifications. If you are enrolled in Master's degrees other than B6001 or B6003, I can grant you approval to enrol (send me and email and explain, please). You'll then need to attach my reply/email to the enrolment amendment form.
  • BFF5230 is a "topics" course (a) strongly connected to current events and (b) as of 2019 making intense use of data (though we won't be using econometric techniques or software). There are 10 weekly assignments based on current events and in part requiring the ability to work with data, weekly class workshops where class participation will be assessed by an expert tutor, and an individual assignment.
