Course Syllabus

Abstract

Research Seminar “Current Problems of the Financial Analysis” (hereafter – “RS”) is the methodological base for the courses of HSE Master’s programme “Financial Analyst”. The emphasis is done for analytical and research student activities. Basic terms, research topics and methods are to be learnt during the seminars. RS partially touches the regular courses’ content, and thus helps to improve the material comprehension and stimulates the self-study. The learning objective of RS – to develop students’ skills of independent research work, including the mastering of current methods and research techniques usage, scientific discussion on the given topic, one’s own research results presentation; to help in work on the master’s thesis; to develop communication and presentation skills. Distance educational process is organized via synchronized interaction (what is shown in your class schedule) in Zoom https://zoom.us/.
