From laying a groundwork of financial terms to explaining how they operate together, this course covers everything you’ll need to know to start investing. Initially, we’ll explain the core terms of finance, then, using our basic understanding, venture into fundamental and comparable analysis. By the middle of the course, you’ll be able to find and pitch a good company. Lectures will focus on special topics such as Credit/Bonds, Options & Futures, ETF’s and finally careers in finance. The final project will be a group deep dive into a passion subject of the group’s choice. This class is for students who are unfamiliar with investing or who may have traded in the past and want to learn more. Our approach is holistic and lends itself to a discussion-oriented lecture style. Students of all backgrounds are welcomed. There is a group midterm stock pitch and a final individual project where students teach on any finance-related topic covered in the class.
You are allowed 2 unexcused absences, but after that you will not pass the class,
regardless of your grades in the other sections. It is your responsibility to make up the material you miss via the weekly slides and reading we send out. This is because the material we cover in class is critical to fully understanding the Homework, Midterm, and Final Project. More than two absences will mean that you do not have the tools to adequately complete the other components of our grade breakdown, and thus will result
in an automatic NP.
Excused Absences: If you have a midterm conflict, student athlete obligations, fallen ill, or other extenuating circumstances, you will need to provide proof of the conflict no latter than 4 hours before class on the day of the absence. Proof of the conflict can be in the form of a coaches note, doctors notes, or proof of scheduled midterm. You will need to send the proof of absence to firstname.lastname@example.org. With the appropriate proof, you will have been excused for that day of class. In order to makeup up the material you missed, it will be your responsibility to review the lecture slide and assigned readings. If you still don’t feel comfortable, you can reach out to one of the facilitators to meet at a separate time that week to go over material.
