Introduction

Business Administration is a discipline that began in the 1760s with the success of the Industrial Revolution and the emergence of new types of industrial economy. With emphasis on business management efficiency based on economic principles, Business Administration is becoming the bible of all free economy. As business structures have become complicated, and the number of growing companies and their competition becomes intense, Business Administration is considered an independent discipline from Economics in order to organize and deliver knowledge required for practical company management. Finance is an area of Economics that  studies activities related to supply and demand.

Recently, there has been an increasing demand for financial professionals from companies and institutions. The Department of Financial Management was established in 2008 to nurture financial experts according to these financial environment changes and demands. This department is the only department at Hanyang University that combines finance with business administration to complete specialized curriculums for finance. Students in this department are required to complete various courses in Business Administration in order to acquire the  basic qualifications of business, and, additionally, to take a wide range of subjects related to Economics and other subjects based on finance for specialization as a financial expert.

3 1 BUS5007 Advanced Investment Extended Major 3-3-0
In asset pricing theory, one tries to understand how the prices of risky assets (or claims to uncertain payment) are determined in equilibrium. Put differently, the mechanical relationship between prices and returns implies that the theory aims to explain why some assets pay higher returns than others. The practical virtue of the asset pricing theory mainly comes from our "normative" beliefs that risky assets should be priced in the way theorized in the asset pricing model. If some assets are inconsistent with a model's prediction, we can claim that the assets are "mis-priced" and provide arbitrage opportunity for (sophisticated) investors to make "abnormal" returns. This use makes the asset pricing theory very appealing to academicians as well as practitioners. The topics include the theoretical treatment of portfolio theory, mean-variance frontiers, CAPM, ICAPM, APT, and Fama-French three-factor model. In addition, an equal weight is given on empirical methods for implementing each theoretical model.

4 1 BUS5007 Asset Pricing Theory Extended Major 3-3-0
In asset pricing theory, one tries to understand how the prices of risky assets (or claims to uncertain payment) are determined in equilibrium. Put differently, the mechanical relationship between prices and returns implies that the theory aims to explain why some assets pay higher returns than others. The practical virtue of the asset pricing theory mainly comes from our "normative" beliefs that risky assets should be priced in the way theorized in the asset pricing model. If some assets are inconsistent with a model's prediction, we can claim that the assets are "mis-priced" and provide arbitrage opportunity for (sophisticated) investors to make "abnormal" returns. This use makes the asset pricing theory very appealing to academicians as well as practitioners. The topics include the theoretical treatment of portfolio theory, mean-variance frontiers, CAPM, ICAPM, APT, and Fama-French three-factor model. In addition, an equal weight is given on empirical methods for implementing each theoretical model.
