Course Title : Bank Management (FIN 464) Instructor : M. Morshed, Senior Lecturer, School of Business Office Room : NAC 763 Office Hours: TBA Telephone : 8852000. Ext. 1708 (office) E-mail : mmorshed@northsouth.edu Course Descriptions This course has a somewhat more practical orientation than many other courses in the business program, focusing as it does on the microeconomic problems of financial management of banking firms. This does not mean, however, that the course is devoid of theoretical interest. The course builds on theories and models covered elsewhere in the program; particularly those detailed in the course of Banking and Finance. It also raises some new theoretical problems for consideration, many of them concerned with the way we need to conceptualize the banking firm. Course Objectives This course examines the role and importance of bank financial management to the modern bank. It teaches the basic models of financial management taught by University Economics Departments and Business Schools, which were constructed from the experience of mature capitalist economies. The course discusses the various trends shaping banking markets, such as institutionalization, securitization, globalization and concentration. Among its aims are the following  To set the banking firm in the context of a changing financial services industry  To look at the role of the financial manager within the banking firm  To examine bank capital and capital structure, and to consider the question of the adequate regulation of the banking sector to ensure its safety, to preserve bank liquidity and prevent bank failures.
