Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
Embedding of employability/PDP/scholarship skills:
Lectures explain the key elements of financial institution/corporate customer relationships (LO1), principles of lending (LO2), analysis of quantitative evidence for lending decision-making (LO3) and the wider implications for bankers in corporate financial planning (LO4 and LO5). Tutorials use a problem-based learning approach to corporate lending: small group or individual consultancies to support coursework and summative assessment requirements.
Assessment1 Is a case study designed to develop skills for the gathering, evaluation, analysis and presentation of a funding report and recommendation. Assessment 2 is a centrally planned exam, the examination focused on a critical understanding of theories and techniques relevant to the banker in their relationship with a corporate customer
Research/teaching linkages:
While the fundamental finance principles for corporate investment have not been subject to change, practice has been researched and such research is embedded in the teaching programme. Students are expected to apply these research findings and be critical of current practice in their evaluation of the lending case study assessment.
Supporting equality and diversity:
Through Moodle, all students have access to learning materials, assessment requirements, lecturer contact details, etc.

Part of the module is delivered in the context of international financial operating and business environment of FI. Extended readings cover various non-UK issues and FIs
