Detailed description of content

With innovation and leadership perspective in mind, the course covers methods of project and investment evaluations. This includes an advanced discussion on the applications of capital budgeting techniques including for example net present value and internal rate of return analysis, as well as the analysis of the relation of risk and return for single projects or investments and for portfolios of them.

Within the topics of minimization of the ratio between risk and return strategies, the course will present to students the advantages of using methods of risk diversification, presenting the efficient frontier of portfolios, which is used directly or indirectly by entrepreneurs when making investments decisions in different projects. Finally, the course will make an advanced analysis of the method associated to the Capital Asset Pricing Model, most used model by managers to calculate the required return for different projects and investments according to their systematic risk.

Thus, the objective of the course goes beyond capital budgeting techniques by visiting methods such as of Markowitz (1952), Sharpe (1964) and Lintner (1965), reflecting upon them and applying these and their derivations to the modern environment of capital investment decisions.
