FMGT 3610 - Security Analysis 1

Financial Management Part-time Studies Course

School of Business

Course Details

The Financial Management technology program at BCIT has entered into a partnership with the Canadian Securities Institute (CSI). This course, a product of the partnership, is the CSI's Canadian Securities Course (CSC) Volume 1. Topics include the Canadian investment marketplace, the nature of marketable securities, factors which influence their price and a review of the various methods employed to evaluate their worth. In addition, the operation of stock exchanges and investment dealers and the regulatory environment in which these institutions operate is discussed. Finally, the methods by which governments and corporations have their securities listed on the exchanges so that investors can trade them is studied. Successful completion of both CSI two exams (a grade of at least 60%) earns the student credit for the CSC with the Canadian Securities Institute and credit for this course and FMGT 4610. Note: There is an extra fee of up to $1500 + GST to enroll with the CSI for the CSC. Your textbook will be provided by the CSI not the book store. You are responsible for visiting the website and enrolling yourself – instructions on how to do so will be provided separately by email.
