New Financing Models in a Changing World

Since the credit crisis in 2008, banks are focused on improving their image and balance sheets. The standards for providing loans have been raised so far that SMEs hardly can fund new investments. Startups have difficulties in raising funds. This trend will continue and therefore small and medium sized companies are sourcing their funds in alternative ways. We also see other financial institutions starting innovations. In short the financial world is changing and new models of financing will conquer the world.

This course will give you insights in the developments within the financial industry in Europe and beyond, as well as the alternative ways companies are funding new investments. This course is searching for new ways to fund (SME-) companies. You will learn about alternative sources: How can crowd-funding provide equity and debt, what is the impact of new technologies like block chain, could banking unions be helpful, how about pension funds, what is the impact of peer-to-peer lending? This will be reached through a mix of lectures, practical exercises, cases and site visits.  

Lecturers have extensive experience in the international financial world and in teaching finance and banking courses in an international environment.

Target audience

This course accepts students from all levels: a business studies background is not required. However, students are expected to have a strong interest or background in either finance or banking, and have to be curious to explore new financials models and innovations. If you have no or limited background in finance or banking, we would advise you to first take part in the 5 days’ course ‘Introduction to Finance & Banking’ (B23) and then take this course as a follow-on. In any case, a good command of English is necessary.

Course Aim

The aim of the course is to understand new financing models in a changing world, within and outside the traditional banking industry. You will learn about alternative funding sources: How can crowdfunding provide equity and debt, what is the impact of new technologies like blockchain, could banking unions be helpful, how about pension funds, what is the impact of peer-to-peer lending?
