Specifically, the course focuses on the pricing and distribution of financial securities within a market economy, and the role of private and government institutions in financial markets. This course is designed for economics majors, and as such, there is a significantly greater emphasis on quantitative techniques than in 300-level courses, and the course tends to be somewhat more rigorous than the classes planned for non- majors.
