Assessment and permitted materials
The course “Financial Intermediation I” consists of 7 three hour sessions. Sessions consist of lectures, covering both theory and empirics.What do I expect from you in class
This is an interactive course, where your active participation is required. Attendance is compulsory.
Laptop/tablets policy. You are not supposed to use your laptop/tablets during case discussions. You have to be 100% focused in the discussions. You may use your laptops/tablets on the lectures/discussion sessions ONLY for academic use. Emailing, facebooking, tweeting, chatting, skyping, internet surfing, etc. should NOT be done during classes. Doing these would penalize strongly your grade on class participation.A learning area will be available in the Intranet (Moodle). There, you would find instructions for the sessions, communications, bibliography, etc. Please look at it a couple of times a week. Slides of the sessions will also be posted here, always BEFORE the class.
