Når du tilmelder dig kurset, skal du være opmærksom på, om der er sammenfald i tidspunktet for kursusafholdelse og eksamen med andre kurser, du har valgt. Uddannelsesplanlægningen tager udgangspunkt i, at det er muligt at gennemføre et anbefalet studieforløb uden overlap. Men omkring valgfrie elementer og studieplaner som går ud over de anbefalede studieforløb, kan der forekomme overlap, alt efter hvilke kurser du vælger.
When registering for courses, please be aware of the potential conflicts between courses or exam dates on courses. The planning of course activities at Roskilde University is based on the recommended study programs which do not overlap. However, if you choose optional courses and/or study plans that goes beyond the recommended study programs, an overlap of lectures or exam dates may occur depending on which courses you choose.
|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.
