Mathematics for Economics, Finance and Management (annual course)

Aim of the course

The first part of the course, comprising points 1 and 2 of the syllabus, is in common with the honours class. Students must choose between the standard or honours class within 16 February 2009.

The first part of the course, corresponding to points 1 and 2 of the syllabus, is in common with the standard class. Students must choose between the standard and honours class within 16 February 2009.

Syllabus

1. *General mathematics:** *The first part of the course provides the introductory elements for understanding the economic/business models common to both three-year degree courses: functions, continuity, differential calculus and optimisation, integral calculus, series. The traditional mathematical fundamentals are illustrated along with some of their most common applications to business and economics Particular emphasis is placed on developing calculation skills and performing tutorial exercises.

2. *Financial mathematics:*** **The second part of the course is devoted to the specific study of financial mathematics, with particular focus on its applications in a business setting. The operations of capitalisation and discounting are presented, along with the financial laws in one and two variables, yields, consumer credit and leasing contracts, the main operations on fixed income securities, and some criteria for evaluating financial operations.

3. *Computation skills:* The final lessons will be devoted to improving on the computation skills developed during the course.

3. *Mathematics for economics:* The final part of the course focuses on the topics of linear algebra, as a tool for economic/financial modelling and the resolution of linear systems, and optimisation in multiple variables. The material is put into context by illustrating some of its principal applications in the microeconomics courses.

Examinations

They exam consists of a mandatory written test, for which the maximum grade is 28/30 (twenty eight). Students can then further increase their grade by sitting the optional oral exam.

The exam consists of a mandatory written test and an optional oral test. Passing the exam earns one extra point for the degree examination.
