Teachers : Nicolas COEURDACIER (Associate Professor in Economics, Department of Economics, Sciences Po). Pedagogical Format : Seminar Course Description : This module covers a range of topics in asset pricing, corporate ﬁnance and banking. The goal of the course is to shed light on the workings of ﬁnancial markets and ﬁnancial intermediation and understand their impact on the real economy. The ﬁrst part focuses on the ubiquitous' notion of liquidity : we analyze some determinants of market liquidity in the context of simple market microstructure models with frictions, and we discuss the determinants of funding liquidity in the light of basic corporate ﬁnance applications of contract theory. The second part of the course focuses on ﬁnancial (in)stability. We analyze how the inherent fragilities of a securitized banking system played out during the 2008 crisis, we study the amplication of shocks through asset market feedbacks, we discuss policy responses to the crisis and its real effects on the US economy. We also re ect on the central role played by safe assets in the international ﬁnancial system and analyze the world supply and demand for safe government debt. The last part of the course takes a longer view on asset market valuation. We provide a framework to decompose return volatility into shocks on cash ows and discount rates and we review the insights from standard consumption-based asset pricing models to interpret stock market uctuations.

Teachers : Shaparak SALEH (Avocat). Pedagogical Format : Workshop Course validation : The class is divided into two parts : 1/ international arbitration and 2/ pre- and post-arbitral litigation.

For each part, students will be graded equally on their oral participation in class and written papers handed in during the semester. Validation will be based on preparation and participation in class. Pedagogical Method : The course method focuses on case studies, and learning-by-doing putting the participants in the shoes of a counsel or arbitrator or judge in a simulated case. Participants are expected to take an active part in the exercises and discussion sessions. Course Description : In this course, students learn about practical aspects of international commercial arbitration. It is preferable, but not required, that students have already taken a course on International Commercial Arbitration. Students who have successfully completed this course sho
