This course provides students with practical programming and mathematical skills to solve popular problems in finance such as building a good personal finance plan, effectively managing investment portfolios, and pricing financial derivatives. Through the course, students will sense the amazing power of compounded interests in accumulating a small amount of money to a much bigger one over time. In addition, students will learn how to use optimization algorithms to optimally allocate investment funds into good investment projects to maximize obtained profits. Students can also build and manage investment portfolios wisely to obtain good returns with acceptable risks. Furthermore, students are introduced to financial derivatives such as future contracts and options to hedge financial portfolios or even speculate on market movements. All the above interesting contents are trained and practiced through practical case studies.
