The course is problem-based, which means that students are expected to independently develop solutions to different problems for financial institutions. The problems are structured as cases and encourage the student to use a variety of analytical tools and research findings to problematize the solutions. The cases give both extensive and deep knowledge about analyzing banks.

The content of the cases are concentrated to:

• The structure and the role of financial institutions and markets.

• Financial statement analysis and performance measurement of financial firms.

• Risk Management in banking.

• ALM (Asset and Liability Management).

• Corporate financing through financial institutions.

• Pricing in financial markets.

• Pricing of financial services.


Roughly 15 minutes with a bike from the city centre, you will find Linnaeus University’s campus. It is like a small society with the university, student accommodation, and student life. Here you become part of a creative knowledge environment.

What will you come across on an excursion in Växjö – the city of contrasts? You will find good restaurants, a celebrated hockey team, and cozy cafés where you can enjoy a latte with lingonberry flavour. In Växjö, beautiful nature is always just around the corner; the city is surrounded by lakes and forests. Students like the combination of the city centre and the active student life on campus. Your dream of the future starts here!
