In compliance with the Czech system of grading, the grades will be arranged in two moments: the preliminary test and the exam.
Preliminary test (10%): will be carried out through a onequestion test. Eventually, some students having sent previous homework will be exempted from the preliminary test. (willing homework will be valid as a preliminary test.
Exam (90%): The final exam will span the entire content of the subject and will be stated in terms of excel practical exercises supplemented with theoretical interpretation. Exam A B C D E (F failed)
 Study Objective:

The content wanders the overview of traditional Portfolio Theory, and the recent updates based on the criticism to shorts positions portfolios and the traditional assumptions.
The course provides students with a comprehensive knowledgebase of corporate financial management. It focuses particularly on the skills, essential for substantiated decisionmaking in a corporate environment.
Significantly, the course will ensure the standardization of elementary proficiencies for students with different backgrounds and develop business English skills and technical vocabulary.
The approach of the course will follow the internal corporative and microeconomic performance of the firm, with a blatant slat towards the market and the financial context.
In analyzing the risk, the usual measure of this spread is the standard deviation or variance. The risk of any stock can be broken down into two parts.
There is the specific or diversifiable risk that is peculiar to that stock, and there is the market risk that is associated
with marketwide variations. Investors can eliminate specific risks by holding a welldiversified portfolio, but
they cannot eliminate market risk.
The finance field touts econometric techniques for gauging the measurement of the individual Beta, a parameter indicating the risk conveyed by each asset.
