I currently teach three courses at the Maastricht University:
- "Finance and Accounting", a second year bachelor course which provides together with the first year's required finance course the foundation in finance for all International Business students at this university.
- "International Financial Management", a third year bachelor course which focusses on international corporate finance and risk management.
- "Corporate Governance and Restructuring", a master course which discusses topics such as different corporate governance systems worldwide, management compensation, mergers and acquisitions, privatization, or project finance.
In the past, I have also taught "International Investments" and "Behavioral Finance".
- "International Investments" is a third year bachelor elective, which covers topics in the area of international portfolio investments such as: international assets pricing, market integration and segmentation, global asset allocation, currency risk, international portfolio evaluation, and emerging markets.
- "Behavioral Finance" is a master course, which investigates the financial decision making behavior of individuals and thereby extends into areas of psychology. Issues that are covered in this course include agency problems, financial market anomalies, market efficiency and the predictability of stock prices, and behavioral asset pricing and portfolio theory.
Since 2012, I have been teaching a course on "Financial Derivates & Real Options" for the Maastricht Summer School with my colleague Paulo Rodrigues. For more details on the upcoming Summer School course, please click on the tab on the right.
