The main theme of the course is how to build an efficient financial system conducive to economic development in a developing, transition and open economy like Vietnam. The institutional approach is used throughout the course.

The course begins with an overall picture of the financial system, its role in economic development, and an analysis of financial system evolution in developing countries. Topics include the potential dangers of government failure from financial repression to financial liberalization. Discussion will also touch on financial crisis, syndromes, causes and solutions based on the experiences of financial crises in different countries.

The course will then study in greater details the components of a financial system and analyzes the ways in which a government in developing and transition countries intervenes in finance. Here we assume an active role of the government in creating and helping financial markets, especially in developing and transition economy. Finally, fundamental issues regarding management principles and market supervisions by international organizations will be examined.
