Deals with the structure and analysis of securitized financial products with an emphasis on residential and commercial mortgage-backed securities (MBS). The course is intended for those who wish to acquire a working knowledge of the analysis of such securities (e.g., collateralized mortgage obligations, commercial MBS, auto loans, and credit card-backed securities) and an understanding of the securitization process. The course’s subject matter necessitates a highly analytic and quantitative approach, and students are required to have a strong background in finance and economics. Students who have questions about preparation or background should see the instructor.
