Courses on financial institutions, financial decision making, business financial management, investments, security analysis, and portfolio management enable students to acquire a depth of understanding in areas of particular interest.

Services provided by financial institutions include the evaluation and bearing of risk and the repackaging of funds in terms of maturity and size of investment. Also examined, on a macro basis, are the markets for financial securities created by corporations and financial intermediaries.
