You are studying business administration or a business-related subject? You have your bachelor’s degree in your pocket or are already on the job? You want to take the next step and you are interested in an international and top-ranked Master program focusing on Finance?

Then seize the opportunity and broaden your view! HHL invites you to a virtual taster lecture on “Mastering a VUCA World – How Simulations and Real Options Can Help to Make Better Decisions” and a brief information session regarding our Master in Management | Finance program with Dr. Masimilian Schreiter.

VUCA (Volatility – Uncertainty – Complexity – Ambiguity) is everywhere nowadays and managers need to find new answers to the challenges of tomorrow. While some of what is told us is exaggerated, there is a true core to it that also applies to corporate finance. Established investment and financing decision approaches rest upon expected values of cash flows and discount rates that may lead to false conclusions for asymmetric claims and high uncertainty – the flaw of averages! Our short webinar gives an overview on cases where traditional corporate finance tools fail and presents new solutions based on Monte Carlo Simulations and Option Pricing capable of describing distributions, quantifying risks and valuing contingent claims.

Through the virtual lecture you will be equipped with some basic knowledge on Monte Carlo simulations and option pricing while getting a taste of what we care for in our Finance Master program at HHL!
