FINANCIAL MARKETS AND INSTITUTIONS COURSE

Course fee: KSH 80,000, USD 1,000 Start Date: 06/07/2020 End Date: 10/07/2020

INTRODUCTION

This course is designed to provide students with an understanding of how financial markets and institutions operate within the overall framework of the domestic and global economies. A primary focus will be on how the markets for debt and equity securities, mortgages, currencies, and derivatives (futures and options) work.  In addition, we will study the functions of central banks that work with and through other financial institutions such as commercial and investment banks to stabilize the Nation States’ economies.  As we travel the world, we will be able to compare how developed countries’ financial systems differ from those of the developing nations and how micro finance has enabled many small businesses in the developing countries to grow. 

We will also examine regulations in various parts of the world to see what impact the regulations have had on the operations of financial systems and institutions. By the end of the course, students will understand why the existence of an efficient and vibrant financial system that has properly been linked to the international financial system is a major requirement for smooth functioning and sustainable advancement of every economy.
