The finance industry is a broad and complex series of interlinked businesses that crosses borders and involves a great deal of government oversight and regulation. Most junior employees spotlight on their specific roles and responsibilities, and in the process they   miss   the   'forest   for   the   trees’   and   often   lack   a detailed   and   considered   understanding   of   how   the industry works and makes money.

The objective of this course is for students to be able to identify the business models and key drivers of various types of financial firms, analyze the process by which     they     develop     sustainable     profitability, and critically assess the   implications   this   has   for   the industry and their own work.
