A practical and comprehensive introductory course on the financial management of a bank and of the associated financial instruments and markets. Financial management is a key discipline of a successful bank or a company or almost any other organisation, so the skills gained on this course are widely applicable to a career in finance
This course can provide a useful introduction to a broad range of financial issues relevant to a career in banking, e.g., as an analyst, dealing with commercial customers, or managing the bank's finances (such as its treasury).
Taught over 10 consecutive weeks in a Central London location, our Bank Financial Management short courses are led by industry experts.
Designed for maximum flexibility, a City evening course is an ideal match for those looking to study and work at the same time, or anyone wanting to improve their business and management expertise.
This Bank Financial Management evening course begins by identifying and explaining the many instruments and markets banks use and operate in. It then provides an overview of the roles of banks and other financial organisations in advanced financial systems and the value they add to economies.
Balance sheet and profit and loss statements are analysed to understand banks' commercial and investment activities. Financial ratios from these statements are calculated to compare commercial banks' relative financial performance and areas for improvement.
A bank's credit and interest rate exposures are also considered as well as methods to quantify and manage them.
The course also considers the financial development of economies from a barter system to the current complex international system based on money. It analyses the cause and solution to the current global financial crisis from a banking perspective.
