2015 was another busy teaching year for FRIC members
Teaching is an important part of disseminating the FRIC center’s research to students and in 2015 FRIC members were again engaged in a wide array of courses ranging from basic courses in finance and statistics to advanced topics courses (electives). Internationally, FRIC members also taught summer school courses as well as regular courses in both Europe (Germany, Austria) and Asia (China).
In fact, in 2015 FRIC members covered up to 10 different courses directly related to the FRIC research agenda and FRIC center members also taught 10 other courses in the more general areas of finance. In addition, more than 30 master thesis students were supervised by FRIC center members in 2015.
“We are proud of the quality and the amount of teaching that is directly or indirectly related to our research agenda. We consider teaching a vital part of our disseminating efforts and our attempts to inspire the next generation,” says FRIC center director David Lando.
A few examples of courses that are very closely related to the core areas of FRIC’s research agenda are Lasse Heje Pedersen’s Hedge fund strategies, Jens Dick-Nielsen’s Credit Risk and David Lando’s Financial Intermediation.
