This module starts with a short overview of the institutional framework of the German and international banking system.

In addition, the most important services provided by banks are examined in more detail. For the credit business, theoretical models and practical designs are contrasted. In addition, trading and securitization of loans are discussed. In the deposit business, its importance for banks and their customers is analyzed. New entrepreneurial solutions in the context of the digital transformation and their consequences form the thematic conclusion of the lecture units.
