One of the biggest challenges for any business working internationally is the sourcing and managing of international finance and payments. The UN suggests that the area of international payments has become critical for many businesses, but the average cost (about 7% per transaction) and slow average processing time are holding back global economic growth.
In this course, we will examine various topics in international finance, including concepts such as real exchange rates, purchasing power parity, hedging, foreign exchange risk, and capital budgeting. You will also learn about international sources of finance, the international market for corporate control, exchange risk and trading on international stick markets. The course further covers multinational corporations, including international transfers within and between global corporations.
