This course provides an introduction to the management of financial institutions and intermediaries.

Students are first introduced to the construct of the firm as a legal entity, and how financial institutions have specific requirements that relate to this. The course then examines the principles of the theory and practice of effective organizational structure and policies for successful risk management and how to manage the inter-relationships that are inherent between departments. Students are also introduced to international standards of banking practice and how they impact the functioning of the institutions plus how to define and measure various types of risk these institutions can be exposed to.
