Finance 618 is a course about managing risk with derivative securities. The course is intended for MBA students that have taken Finance 580. It develops in detail some of the topics introduced in Finance 580, such as index, currency, and futures options and dynamically hedging American options on securities that pay dividends. Finance 618 also introduces a number of new topics, such as exotic options and interest rate derivatives.
