Courses a.y. 2023/2024


Courses previous a.y.

I teach the Asset Management course (20248), which is an optional course for Master of Science students. My main goal in this course is to provide an updated picture of the main relevant technical themes in the asset management industry, enabling fifth-year students to successfully approach the job market in this sphere. 

I also teach an introductory Derivatives course at MAFINRISK, which has the goal to level the playing field on this subject among students coming from different backgrounds. This course covers approximately the first half of the ubiquitous Hull textbook.

Biographical note

I was born in Milan in 1962 and received my Ph.D. in Economics from Bocconi University in 1987. After some teaching in other universities, I returned to Bocconi in 2001 as an Associate Professor in the Department of Finance.

I have been involved since its inception in the Master of Quantitative Finance and Risk Management (MAFINRISK) program, either as a Director or Coordinator.

I am married and have two children.

Research interests

My teaching activity, as well as my main research interest, has always been in the fields of asset management, risk management, and asset pricing.
