TEXTBOOK: Money & Capital Markets, 8th Edition, Peter S.
Rose, McGraw Hill Publisher,
Course description: A study of the macro financial environment with
emphasis on the structures, functions and economic role of financial
institutions and markets. This includes the role of commercial banks, the
central banking system and international finance.
Course Requirements: Students must read all assignments prior to class
and attend classes with the expectation to discuss the subject matter.
Students are expected to be reading business news daily, which will also be
discussed. Assigned homework deserves a good faith attempt and is turned
in at the beginning of the next class, with credit given for the effort.
Homework not turned in on time cannot be made up. Occasional extra credit
points will be available that will be included with homework. One short
presentation will be given by each student that is relevant to our studies and
current business news. Quizzes and final exam will be comprehensive and
will focus on broadening the student's business language and "tool box".
Please turn all cell phones to "silent" or "vibrate" so as not to disrupt the
Attendance is taken at the start of class; if you will be later than 5:40,
call me before class on the above phone #. If one class is missed, contact
the instructor either before the missed class or immediately after, to find out
what needs to be done to catch up. Two classes is too must to miss from an
8 week program; the school policies enforce that fact reflecting such as an
administrative withdraw and failing grade.

carelessness or ignorance. Learners who are uncertain about proper
