Course Description: Corporate finance and microeconomics are applied to matters of importance to commercial bankers. Among the subjects treated are bank asset portfolio construction, lending policies, liabilities management, bank capital structure, short run cash management, financial market rates and flows, and quantitative models for bank management. Commercial bank management is analyzed from an internal viewpoint in terms of what bank managers should look for in asset management and why; what market conditions they should be aware of; and what techniques they can use to meet changing economic and financial conditions.
Course Objectives: The objectives of this course are to: provide students with an introduction to the financial management of the commercial banking enterprise, equip students with an understanding of the basic issues involved in value creation and risk management for banking firms, and equip students with the technical and analytical tools, and strategic abilities necessary to understand the evolution and workings of the commercial banking industry.
