Cíle předmětu
The main objective of the course is to acquaint students with an understanding of the basic concepts of banking, bank management and bank regulation. The course is aimed at understanding the behavior of banks, their specific characteristics and operations, and the special intermediation role they play in the financial system and the economy as a whole. The course is also addressing some of the major trends in domestic and international banking in recent times using the basic tools of economic analysis.
Particular attention is given to the theories of financial intermediation and market frictions (informational asymmetries) as well as to issues concerned with bank performance and risk-taking. Emphasis is further placed on the management of the bank and, in particular, management of the balance sheet, risk management, and loan pricing.
Class time will be divided between lectures, seminars, class presentations and a class project. Two-hour lectures will be used to highlight the key points of the material. Seminars are designed to further the understanding of bank financial statements and bank performance. Class participation in the form of problem solving or responding to questions will be an important part of the learning experience.

Výukové metody
The course is taught in lectures and seminars, which include class discussions and require active participation. The attendance is compulsory. Students are expected to prepare themselves for lectures and seminars by reading the provided materials beforehand. Tutorial group meetings will be organized and held once a week. Class presentations improve the ability of students to summarize a certain issue in the field of banking and discuss it critically. Additional readings serve to broaden and deepen the spectrum of knowledge students acquire during the lectures. At the end of the course, each student should submit a final project in a form of an analysis of the chosen commercial bank.
Metody hodnocení
For the successful completion of the course students are required: to take a written exam, make one class presentation on the given topic and submit one individual project (by the end of week 11).
Following is the scale that will be used to evaluate your performance in this class:
- one report write-up (up to 5 grade points),
- one seminar presentation on the specific topic (up to 5 grade points),
- active participation in the class (up to 6 grade points),
- final exam (up to 20 grade points).
The exam will be cumulative on the material from the entire course. Students will not be allowed to take an exam without submitting the report and given the presentation with all the requirements fulfilled. Active participation in class means that student is actively watching, listening and answering questions as the lecture or seminar progresses. Student also tries to solve the suggested example problems as the lecture/seminar proceeds and proves that he/she has learned the material by answering the related questions and working the related problems incorporated in the summative assessment. Participation quality (thoughtfulness of comments or questions) is valued more than participation quantity (frequency of comments/ questions).
