Programming for Finance (273013)

In the winter semester, the Institute of Finance and Commodity Markets offers the lecture Programming for Finance. In this course the students should be familiarized with the collection of data via Datastream, the word processing software LaTeX, as well as with the statistical software R. This should prepare the students in particular for writing empirical seminar papers and theses. The tasks are particularly focused on the empirical analysis of financial markets in order to give students an insight into tasks that are particularly relevant for work in the area of finance.

The course covers the following topics:

  • Introduction to Datastream
  • Introduction to R
  • Empirical data analysis with R
  • Introduction to LaTeX

The course is evaluated by an exam.

 

The course will be held weekly. The course will be held in English.
