This course focuses on managing modern financial enterprises, innovation and technology management in these organizations, and the risk-return tradeoff from a financial-institution perspective. It deals with the theory and practice of financial institutions by analyzing the regulatory, technological and competitive factors that define the dynamics of this rapidly changing industry. Knowledge in this course is developed primarily with a mix of textbook reading and discussions of concepts in real business contexts through case studies. The objective is to provide technology managers with a firm knowledge of the normative consequences on financial-management decision making to create shareholder value.
