Demystify Derivatives with Boston University’s new course – Derivatives Securities and Markets

Starting Spring 2017, students have the option to learn more about derivatives securities in the new online course, Derivatives Securities and Markets (MET AD 713). Dr. Irena Vodenska, associate professor and coordinator of the finance programs, will cover derivatives instruments and their role in financial markets, investments, and risk management, presented from the viewpoint of market hedgers as well as speculators.

The derivatives course will build on these fundamentals to provide a framework for (i) analyzing individual derivative securities (options, futures, and swaps) and (ii) using these securities in a portfolio setting to enhance the overall yield and/or reduce the volatility of portfolio returns. This course is a new addition to the list of electives for anyone in the fully online degree programs offered by the Department of Administrative Sciences, specifically for students enrolled in the Master of Science in Banking & Financial Services Management program.

Prerequisite: MET AD 731 and MET AD 630 or equivalent knowledge
