EMF Class: Household Finance
This is your chance to deeply connect with SDA Bocconi by attending online a real Executive Master in Finance (EMF) open class. We are providing this opportunity for candidates to further understand the SDA Bocconi EMF Community and get a feeling for the real class atmosphere, teaching approaches and learning processes.
The first part of the course outlines various stages of portfolio decision making and compares optimal precepts to actual household decisions as measured in the data. Do households follows the basic precepts of financial theory? Which households makes the largest mistakes? How costly are deviations from optimal behavior? How do households invests as they get richer?
The second part of the course will focus on three key issues: the characterization of households preference for risk, their measurement and determinants; the role of trust in shaping households financial decisions and the relation with financial intermediaries; and finally the role and working of financial advice, investigating who relies on advice, why they do and whether advice is rewarding or not.
