Terri Duhon teaches on the MBA and MSc in Financial Economics programmes. This includes teaching on an eight-week experiential trading strategy course where students create equity, debt and foreign exchange exposures and mark them to market for six weeks. Students run Var and scenario analysis on the portfolios with and without leverage, and then identify two trade strategies using derivatives and propose those trades based on risk return analysis. 

Terri contributes to the Oxford Algorithmic Trading Programme, an immersive online modular programme exploring the methods and opportunities to harness technology for effective trading stragies.
