5.1. Methodological overview

The learning-teaching process designed for the subject "Financial Valuation" with 6 ECTS credits is based on the distribution of 150 hours of student work in actual 60 hours face and 90 non-actual hours.

Specifically, the 60 classroom hours are divided into 30 hours of participatory lectures and 30 hours of practices solving problems and cases on the blackboard and with the computer. As a consequence, the development of actual classrooms is structured around the fundamental points that are described in the following section. 

5.2. Learning tasks

Participatory lecture sessions:

In these sessions the lecturer exposes and explains the basic concepts of financial transactions as well as the financial laws that allow assessing these operations with the objective that the student calculates and reflects on the cost / return of different financial operations by solving simple theoretical-practical cases in the classroom. At these sessions, student participation will be enhanced to discuss the most important concepts analyzed in each session.

The student will have available the bibliography recommended for each of the units studied and is waiting for him to review it in detail before attending the corresponding session.

Solution problem Sessions and blackboard cases and at computer rooms:

Every week, in addition to the participatory lecture session, students will have a session of problems and cases solution. In connection with these problem-solving sessions and cases, students are expected particularly active due to the split of groups.

Sessions of Practical Works (P6 type)

In case of the existence of these sessions, students will present and defense the proposed practical cases.
