Goals

After the course the students should also be familiar with the key financial topics of practical interest for companies active in emerging markets.

The overall theme of the course is to analyse how financial institutions and markets function or can be created within emerging economies. The course combines major areas of finance, such as corporate finance, investments and capital markets, all covered from the perspective of emerging markets. It also covers areas of particular interest to emerging economies, including microfinance, payment systems and pension systems in countries with limited social protection. China is used as an example of a country that has managed to create its own financial markets, which is contrasted by other emerging economies that so far lack well-developed financial institutions.
