International Finance

Course Overview

This course is organized around four main modules: exchange rate determination and key relationships; international financial institutions and instruments; international corporate finance (currency risk and taxes); and international portfolio management (allocation and currency risk). Its focus on effective management within the context of exchange rate uncertainty makes this course relevant to a broad range of professional interests – such as corporate treasury management, global portfolio management, and corporate finance – without focusing exclusively on any one domain. The course consists of lectures, discussion of problems, and an applied team project.
