Every investment decision demands the application of modern financial theory. However, advanced theories are set in the context of developed countries and do not capture the intricacies of operating in unstable markets. Despite the importance of investment flows to developing countries today, it´s surprising that very little has been done to adapt financial principles to the special realities of unstable markets. In this course we will make an effort to fill in this missing part. Key concepts of financial theory will be reviewed with a focus on investment decisions in real assets as it relates to investors in unstable markets.

Prerequisites: This is an advanced course. Thus, attendants must be proficient in corporate finance and the use of excel. In addition, knowledge of firm valuation is important.
