ECON 3380 Capital Markets (Fall/Spring: 3 )


Course Description

Valuation of assets, rates of return, measurement of earnings, finance and securities markets, risk and portfolio choice, and special problems in investment. The course is designed to give students an appreciation of the role of securities markets in the allocation of capital. It assumes some background in economics but no prior work in finance. Finance majors should not take the course since they would encounter most of the material elsewhere, and anyone who has had basic finance would find about half of the topics redundant. Not open to students who have completed ECON3378; cannot be taken concurrently with ECON3378.


Instructor(s): Harold Petersen
