"Financial Markets/Global Society" - Professional Linkage Seminar
- Stephen M Levin
- Parkes Hall 212 - TuTh 12:30PM - 1:50PM
Overview of classThe financial marketplace has increasingly become an important part of our society. The modern global marketplace is changing and growing quickly and has taken on a new significance with respect to the world's economy. Classes will cover important topical, relevant issues and ideas as they relate to the marketplace and its role within our society. These include evolution of trading, practical solutions and practices, regulatory issues, ethics, and a detailed analysis of organized markets. There will be guest speakers such as professional traders, leaders from local commodity exchanges with experience in market development, and a representative from the business media. Students will participate in a simulated trading project that will give the opportunity to track markets and make hypothetical trading judgments.
And there will be an optional (but highly recommended!) trip downtown to visit various relevant financial institutions and firms.
Evaluation MethodBesides the trading project, there will be reading assignments with occasional quizzes, a midterm and a final exam. Class participation will also be considered during evaluation.
