Upon completion of the module students will be able to explain the role financial institutions play in financial markets based on economic theory. They will have a sound knowledge of institutional and regulatory conditions under which financial institutions operate today, and they will be able to critically assess respective developments in the financial sector. Moreover, they will have developed a sound understanding of how banks are managed in a competitive environment.
We will discuss theoretical foundations of financial intermediation in general, and of banking in particular as well as the economic, institutional, and regulatory context in which financial institutions operate today. Moreover, we will cover selected topics in the area of bank management and bank accounting..
