A detailed study of the operations of financial institutions and the interrelationships between their operations and economic activity. Emphasis is placed on the effect of economic forces, regulation and technological change on the operations of these institutions.

Advanced work in the management of corporate funds. Selected topics from the various fields of financial activity with emphasis on trends, current problems and research are studied. The topics emphasized include: capital expenditure policies, long- term and short-term financing problems, dividend policies, mergers and consolidations, and trends in financial markets.

Analyze major issues in the financial management of financial institutions. Especially, the concepts and techniques required for the successful management of firms will be discussed. The course will get into some institutional detail by analyzing the interplay between (changes in) regulation and innovation, and their joint effects on the organizational structure of financial institutions. The main focus, however, be on concepts rather than institutional details.

Michael H. Anderson also holds the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) designation. Currently, he is a Full Professor at the Charlton College of Business.  Prior to becoming a teacher, he worked at a small manufacturing firm, rising to the position of Controller.  At UMassD, Professor Anderson has taught Corporate Finance, Financial Institutions and Investments at both the undergraduate and MBA levels. His most recent research has been on subprime financing. The intent of that work is to determine who is using these contracts--such things as rent-to-own, payday loans, and pawnbroking--and why and how they are used in order to make a positive contribution to the policy debate about how best to help these disadvantaged and/or disenfranchised consumers.
