    • The Open University of Hong Kong (OUHK) (Hong Kong Government established) - Chinese Contract Law

      The Open University of Hong Kong (OUHK) (Hong Kong Government established) - Chinese Contract Law

       (Government established. Financially independent) Programme introduction China is playing an increasingly important part in global commerce. It now crucially impacts on the landscape of the world's economy, especially with the country's success in becoming a World Trade Organization (WTO) member. China business at the present time is a virtually indispensable component of life for people and enterprises around the world, particularly in Hong Kong where initiatives are being generated from the Closer Economic Partnership Agreement (CEPA). In this environment, specialized knowledge of Chinese business law is becoming increasingly sought after, especially by those in the fields of law, business and general administration. The Master of Laws in Chinese Business Law programme, launched by the Lee Shau Kee School of Business and Administration of The Open University of Hong Kong (OUHK), is designed to meet the strong demand for useful knowledge in Chinese business law in a context where law and business are intertwined, and to provide relevant cross-border and comparative perspectives. Course content emphasizes practicality and broad coverage to help students gain a solid understanding of Chinese business law. This programme is suitable for business management professionals in Chinese–foreign (including Hong Kong and Taiwanese) joint ventures and foreign-related enterprises. It is also suitable for managers and proprietors of non-government enterprises as well as small and medium-sized enterprises. The programme provides students with the knowledge of business law which is required for any business undertakings within and outside China . The programme will be delivered online in the e-learning mode, and will be presented in both Chinese and English versions. It involves a combination of eight core Chinese business law courses and four elective courses in business and/or law areas. The English version of the programme was first launched in October 2008. The Chinese version of the programme was first launched in October 2007. Enrolment for both the English and Chinese versions for the April 2009 semester has been started. There is an early exit point to the Master of Laws in Chinese Business Law programme where students who have completed 20 credits will be awarded the Postgraduate Certificate in Chinese Business Law (PCCBL). Those who are only interested in certain areas of Chinese Business Law may want to take just one or two courses. They can do so as part of the Single Course Study. There are no academic prerequisites for the Single Course Study.

      UFF - Investimento de Risco

        Um retorno justo sobre o investimento é aquele que compensa o investidor pelo risco incorrido na realização do investimento, nem mais nem menos. Por outro lado, um excesso de retorno é aquele que mais compensa o investidor pelo risco incorrido. Os investidores querem evitar investimentos que pagam menos do que uma justa remuneração, enquanto os mutuários querem evitar o pagamento de uma remuneração adicional. Nesta unidade, iremos:     * definir com mais precisão o que entendemos por "risco" em um contexto financeiro;     * considerar como os investidores reagem à presença ou ameaça de risco;     * desenvolver um método de quantificação de risco matematicamente e     * olhar para os fatores principais que contribuem para o risco de investimento no mundo real.Finalmente, veremos como a utilização da regra de valor presente líquido permite aos investidores calcular se os riscos em que incorrem são devidamente recompensados.

      What can I do as an individual about climate change

      There is now a strong global scientific consensus that climate change is real and due to CO₂ emissions from human use of fossil fuels. When considering action to reduce emissions, and prevent the worst impacts of climate change, large changes require government intervention and changes in corporate behaviour. However, there are many important actions that can be taken in parallel by individuals in order to move towards a lower-carbon lifestyle.
