By the end of the course, you will be able to apply the knowledge gained for analysis and management of international cyber incidents and conflicts including for activities such as development of policy related to cybercrime and cyberwarfare. Management of cyber incidents and conflicts requires an interdisciplinary perspective including an understanding of: 1) characteristics of the cyber threats and conflicts themselves, 2) international efforts to reduce and improve cyber security, and 3) psychological and sociopolitical factors. The course is designed to reach an international audience and will encourage discussion on relevant current events among participants to enrich the experience with various personal and cultural perspectives on cutting-edge issues.

In this course, you will learn what the main financial markets and their characteristics are as well as how they are linked to the economy. Our very diversified team of experts will start by teaching you how the price of stocks and bonds are computed and why they move while you will become increasingly aware of the notion of risk and why it matters when measuring an investment's performance. The focus will then move to less popular markets such as gold, emerging markets, real estate, hedge funds and private markets. These will be analyzed with an emphasis on their particular risks and return opportunities as well as how they can help in building efficient portfolios. Finally, the policies of central banks and their impact on financial markets will be presented to you along with the link between the economy and the price of financial assets. All along these different steps, experts from UBS, our corporate partner, will show you how the concepts you just acquired are effectively applied in a leading global bank. This focus on practicality means you will not only understand what is going on in global financial markets but also start to figure out how you can use them to achieve financial goals, be it a client's or your own.

Bardóczi Ákos, Budapest, Sept 2021

"Working with Ákos is one of the most enlightening and eye opening experience I have ever had. His broad spectrum of knowledge and work ethics is unique. I would recommend him as a colleague or a contractor to anyone working in IT Sec any day." (DevOps professional)

"Ákos worked with my team as an external advisor for about a month and helped us to develop custom techniques suitable for our special needs. He is a highly skilled professional and a great advisor too who has a deep, practical knowledge in various fields of IT security and cybersecurity thanks to his enthusiasm for learning new things day-by-day. His approach to different kinds of problems is often unique compared to others so he can be a valuable member of any business community. He also has the ability to give down to earth advices while his ideas are still fit to the wider theoretical / conceptual framework of the project. I would definitely recommend him. " (PhD candidate)

"Bevallom, első körben nem könnyű felvenni Ákos gondolatmenetének ritmusát. A-ról beszél, de közben már D-n agyal, időbe telik, mire számomra is kikristályosodnak az ötletei, akkor viszont hatalmasat ütnek. Olyan aspektusokból képes vizsgálni sokszor triviálisnak tűnő dolgokat, melyre kevesen gondolnánk, ezáltal mindig tud valami újat, formabontót javasolni. Szívesen dolgoztam és fogok is vele dolgozni a jövőben, ha az OSINT nagymesterét keresed, ne habozz, ő a te embered!" (online marketing expert)

"Gratula: a cikket value proposition szempontból egyedülállónak tartom a magyar piacon: egyrészt szépen kidolgozott alkotás, másrészt merész szakmaisággal támasztja alá a kijelentéseit. Ez multi környezetnen nem szokás, csak a frázisok mennek manapság. Jó volt végigolvasni." (reader, Business Developement Manager)

"Ex rendőrként (10+ év nyomozói tapasztalattal) adnék dupla likeot erre" (reader, Six Sigma),

"Ritkán olvasni ilyen érdekes és tartalmas szakmai írást magyarul. Gratula érte" (reader, Brand and Business Development Manager)
