ISBN: 0-07-294108-1

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 class.

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.
