FI 491 Sec 003: Economics and Finance of Innovation

Special Topics in Finance course aims to complement the EC491 and FI444 courses by adding specific modules like global financing, capacity planning, emerging financing instruments, policy design, etc., It is highly recommended, even if not mandatory, to attend these in advance or in parallel with the present course.

The course combines the variety of academic perspectives with practitioners’ views, thus making it appropriate both for students interested in pure academic research and for those looking to improve their entrepreneurial skills and knowledge-base for real practice. It will leverage the extended Israeli (known as “The Startup Nation”) accumulated experience in the field by using case studies and interacting occasionally with Israeli practitioners.
