    EX 1111 is offered this winter:

The objec­tive of this course is to pro­vide you with the knowl­edge and tools to make smart invest­ment deci­sions. You will learn the prin­ci­ples and tech­niques used to ana­lyze secu­ri­ties such as stocks and bonds. In addi­tion, you will learn how to build a glob­al­ly diver­si­fied port­fo­lio. We will out­line the risks to avoid and more impor­tant­ly how to behave when risk man­i­fests itself upon the mar­kets. The focus will be on build­ing your con­fi­dence by teach­ing you how to rely on a sys­tem and not on your emotions.
