Introduction to the Financial World



Why Article Reviews?

In this Introduction to Banking course you will review a new article every two weeks; your first article review will be due during Week 02. In Week 11 you will compile a list of all five articles you’ve reviewed with brief descriptions and personal feedback for each.

The article reviews are designed to give you an opportunity to research and learn about current events that affect the specific financial issues discussed during the two weeks you are writing the review. The purpose is to demonstrate how information covered in this course applies to the current financial world.

The first article you review should touch on the aspects of banking covered in Weeks 1 and 2:

  • Primary and Secondary Markets in the Financial World/Domestic and Global Finances
  • Determinants of Interest Rates and Time Value of Money

Suggested Article Sources 

You may choose any article that fits the subject areas of Weeks 1 and 2.
