Module overview

This module aims to provide students with practical knowledge of the equity markets (primary and secondary markets, and mergers and acquisitions activities), as well as an overall understanding in the theoretical foundation and empirical evidence with regard to portfolio theories, capital market theories and market efficiency. The combination of the practical and theoretical elements provides a full picture about how the real financial markets operate, how investors can reach ideal investment decisions, and whether the aggregate empirical evidence of the stock market is consistent with what theories suggest. This module takes a global perspective, from which we learn practices and empirical evidence from the developed markets, as well as the emerging markets.
