Short description

In this module, the financial side of companies is modelled and analysed using mathematical models and computer simulation. As interest rates are crucial, the course starts with an introduction to interest rate theory. In the second part, different companies are modelled and analysed.

Module contents

As the title suggests, the contents of the module ”Financial Enterprise Modeling” is the modeling and analysis of the financial side of (financial and non-financial) institutions. Knowing about the financial implications of technical decisions is important for future industrial engineers. In this course, the focus is on the economic implications. The formal, accounting-related aspects are not dealt with.
For the valuation of investments or entire institutions, market interest rates are crucial. Accordingly, the first part of the course is devoted to an introduction to interest rate theory together with its application to the fundamental fixed-rate financial contracts (annuities, credits, bonds, investments).
The theory is illustrated by means of a simulation of these financial instruments.
Then, in the second part, simple models of different institutions are built and simulated using the building blocks presented in the first part. Capital and liquidity requirements of these models are analyzed in view of return and risk.
