Inhalt The course consists of two identically structured blocks.

Each block starts with two to three four-hours lectures where the topics are introduced and the major papers in the literature are discussed.

Following that, topics are assigned to students for their essay. The essays might be a small literature survey on a specific topic, a small empirical research, or an in-depth discussion of a particular paper. The essays should not be long. More important is a concise presentation of the findings.

This is followed by three weeks in which students will write their essays. During this time, frequent office hours or discussion by appointment are offered exclusively for the students enrolled in the class.

In this period, guest lecturers from institutions such as BIS, FINMA, SNB, ECB or academics from other universities will present on topics relating to the course.

In the third part of the block, students present their essays to the class and these are then discussed.

Two such blocks will be performed, so that students will prepare two essays (one for each of the blocks). Depending on the size of the class, only a selection of students might present their essay in one block. However, over the two blocks, each student will give at least one presentation.

Lernziele Banking is an important industry in any modern economy. If this industry performs well, it can be a source of substantial welfare gains. However, history has demonstrated that banking is inherently fragile. Every generation experiences one or multiple banking crises. This is one of the reasons why banking activity is heavily regulated and supervised by government agencies.

In this course, we learn about the theory of the banking firm, the history of financial crises, and the regulatory architecture.

 

Teilnahmebedingungen The course is designed for MSc students (Business and Economics or MIME) and PhD students.

Students who wish to participate must have passed at least two of the following four mandatory classes of the MSc in Business and Economics: Game Theory, Microeconomics, Macroeconomics, Econometrics. Prior knowledge of contract theory is desirable but not mandatory.

Students who do not fulfill these requirements are requested to ask for permission before enrolling.
