Principles of Capital Markets


Going beyond simply introducing the basic technical products, this training program discusses theories, approaches, and relationships within the capital markets. Through interactive case studies using actual market data, participants will gain a thorough understanding of market dynamics by learning to analyze current market conditions and form educated views about future markets. The learning environment is highly interactive, and enhanced by the live simulations, mini cases/projects/debates and the use of tools like Excel and Bloomberg.
