Why Financial Markets and Institutions?

The Graduate Certificate in Financial Markets and Institutions will provide students with a greater understanding of financial systems as well as how to manage risks, assets, and liabilities in meeting corporate goals.

In this rapidly changing business environment, the barriers between institutions are eroding, and competition is increasing due to deregulation and new product development. Managing internal operations more efficiently and adapting to the changing external environment is critical to the long-term survival of institutions.

Students will enhance their understanding of financial systems, learn to measure the impact of accounting decisions on performance; to manage risks, assets, and liabilities to meet corporate goals; to understand domestic and international financial systems and the institutions within them; and to build financial relationships that foster marketing financial products. An examination of financial services industry principles and practices will provide individuals working in brokerage houses, investment or commercial banks, insurance companies, or real estate with a greater understanding of financial systems as well as how to manage risks, assets, and liabilities in meeting corporate goals.
