Investment

Investment management is the professional asset management of various securities (shares, bonds and other securities) and other assets (e.g., real estate) in order to meet specified investment goals for the benefit of the investors. Investors may be institutions (insurance companies, pension funds, corporations, charities, educational establishments etc.) or private investors (both directly via investment contracts and more commonly via collective investment schemes e.g. mutual funds or exchange-traded funds).

The term asset management is often used to refer to the investment management of collective investments, while the more generic fund management may refer to all forms of institutional investment as well as investment management for private investors. Investment managers who specialize in advisory or discretionary management on behalf of (normally wealthy) private investors may often refer to their services as money management or portfolio management often within the context of so-called “private banking“.

The provision of investment management services includes elements of financial statement analysis, asset selection, stock selection, plan implementation and ongoing monitoring of investments. Coming under the remit of financial services many of the world’s largest companies are at least in part investment managers and employ millions of staff. It remains unclear if professional investment managers can reliably enhance risk adjusted returns by an amount that exceeds fees and expenses of investment management.[1]

The term fund manager (or investment advisor in the United States) refers to both a firm that provides investment management services and an individual who directs fund management decisions.

According to a Boston Consulting Group study, the assets managed professionally for fees reached an all-time high of US$62.4 trillion in 2012, after remaining flat-lined since 2007.[2] Furthermore, these industry assets under management were expected to reach US$70.2 trillion at the end of 2013 as per a Cerulli Associates estimate.

The global investment management industry is highly concentrated in nature, in a universe of about 70,000 funds roughly 99.7% of the US fund flows in 2012 went into just 185 funds. Additionally, a majority of fund managers report that more than 50% of their inflows go to only three funds.

Public Administration

Public Administration is the implementation of government policy and also an academic discipline that studies this implementation and prepares civil servants for working in the public service.[1] As a “field of inquiry with a diverse scope” whose fundamental goal is to “advance management and policies so that government can function”.[2] Some of the various definitions which have been offered for the term are: “the management of public programs”;[3] the “translation of politics into the reality that citizens see every day”;[4] and “the study of government decision making, the analysis of the policies themselves, the various inputs that have produced them, and the inputs necessary to produce alternative policies.”[5]

Public administration is “centrally concerned with the organization of government policies and programs as well as the behavior of officials (usually non-elected) formally responsible for their conduct”.[6] Many unelected public servants can be considered to be public administrators, including heads of city, county, regional, state and federal departments such as municipal budget directors, human resources (HR) administrators, city managerscensus managers, state mental health directors, and cabinet secretaries.[4] Public administrators are public servants working in public departments and agencies, at all levels of government.

In the United States, civil servants and academics such as Woodrow Wilson promoted civil service reform in the 1880s, moving public administration into academia.[7]However, “until the mid-20th century and the dissemination of the German sociologist Max Weber‘s theory of bureaucracy” there was not “much interest in a theory of public administration”.[8] The field is multidisciplinary in character; one of the various proposals for public administration’s sub-fields sets out six pillars, including human resourcesorganizational theorypolicy analysisstatisticsbudgeting, and ethics.[9]

Business Information Systems

Business Information Systems (BIS) comprises the analysis and organization of business information through the application of technology. As such it blends core concepts of management, operations and information systems theory with computer science and engineering methods and technologies to manage an organization’s data.

‘Information,’ is a funny thing. Unlike material commodities it can be used without reducing the original resource. Also, the cost for storing and transporting information is low and advances in technology throughout history, from the invention of the printing press to the advancement of the World Wide Web and mobile and cloud computing, have pushed these costs ever lower. At the same time, it has become ever easier to manipulate and distribute this information.

Studying information systems involves, among other things, learning how to design, build and evaluate these systems. To do this, we must develop an intricate understanding of the information needs of the organization, the business processes that generate and consume information, the roles of people and working groups in these processes and the efficiency of these processes. We furthermore must develop a thorough understanding of the nature of the data involved including the data’s structure, persistence, transience, ownership and binary nature. Based on this understanding, supplemented with a good grasp of the available technologies, we can then design and build a set of technical and managerial tools that contribute to a problem’s solution or the realization of a business opportunity.

Studying business information systems also involves learning about the various organizations involved in the development and standardization of information technologies and the implications of the technical choices organizations make. This implies that we must learn how to evaluate and measure the effects of these choices on the behavior and performance of the host organizations.

The Business Information Systems degree at OSU prepares you for a career in business information systems. The program provides a solid foundation in business administration, to which the Business Information Systems courses add an emphasis on business information systems. Graduates from the college’s Business Information Systems program have widely varying careers. A few choose to become software developers, but most others become business process analysts, quality control managers, data modelers, teachers (yes, it happens!), systems analysts, software compliance testers, or something else entirely. Some students, especially those with dual degrees, find ways to specialize in the business information systems aspects of another business discipline. An example would be those with a double Accounting and Business Information Systems degree who establish a career in accounting information systems or information systems auditing.

International Trade

International trade is the exchange of goods and services between countries. This type of trade gives rise to a world economy, in which prices, or supply and demand, affect and are affected by global events. Political change in Asia, for example, could result in an increase in the cost of labor, thereby increasing the manufacturing costs for an American sneaker company based in Malaysia, which would then result in an increase in the price that you have to pay to buy the tennis shoes at your local mall. A decrease in the cost of labor, on the other hand, would result in you having to pay less for your new shoes.

Trading globally gives consumers and countries the opportunity to be exposed to goods and services not available in their own countries. Almost every kind of product can be found on the international market: food, clothes, spare parts, oil, jewelry, wine, stocks, currencies, and water. Services are also traded: tourism, banking, consulting and transportation. A product that is sold to the global market is an export, and a product that is bought from the global market is an import. Imports and exports are accounted for in a country’s current account in the balance of payments.

Economics of Regulation

2.5 Years Anhui Agricultural University Masters Degree

Economics of Regulation

This course uses theoretical industrial organisation models as tools and analyse its application on competition policy and regulation. Our starting point would be the introduction of market definition and market power. We then consider the exercise of market power in a number of settings, such as through collusion, merger, vertical control, predation, and some non-price monopolization practices. Treatments of various potentially anti-competitive conducts in various guidelines, including the ACCC merger guideline and Trade Practices Act 1974, will be discussed.

In the last part of the course, we review the theory of economic regulation. The materials covered include the basic theory of regulation.

This is the last course in the applied micro economics sequence. For students considering taking this course as well as Industrial Organisation, the suggested sequence would be taking IO first. At least intermediate level of micro economics is required for students to excel in this course.
