Outer core courses cover critical contemporary issues in modern finance. Students must take at least two (2) out of three (3).

Behavioral Finance
Laura Ipacs
This course introduces the effects of social, cognitive, and emotional factors on the financial decisions made by individuals and institutions. Psychological biases inhibit the individual’s ability to make good investment decisions. This has several consequences on market prices, returns, and the resource allocation decisions made by corporate decision makers.

Finance and Strategy
Mark Walton
How do companies decide on their key strategic objectives when it comes to financing? The course covers the key elements of linking the overall objectives of the corporation with financing strategies. It provides examples of conflicting objectives, and explains how these objectives can be managed using real-life case studies.

Regulatory and Policy Environment
Maciej Kisilowski
This course provides an intensive and broad introduction to the post-crisis regulatory environment of financial markets, with particular emphasis on the US, the UK, and the evolving EU regulatory schemes. The course’s focus is balanced between regulation of traditional and new/exotic financial services, institutions, and instruments.


  • "I have been recently nominated as the Regional IT Manager for West Africa at Unilever. My CEU Business School education has been a key differentiator during an otherwise very competitive recruitment process. I would like to thank all my great peers of the 2013-14 cohort and the wonderful faculty at the B-School for the valuable learning experience I had during my time in BP."
