FIN 301: International Finance

Term: Spring/Fall


The International Finance module provides an understanding of finance in the international context. In a globally integrated world, it has become imperative to trade, invest and conduct business operations internationally. The course exposes the students to the opportunities and risks associated with international finance. As the world has become more integrated due to deregulation of financial markets, product innovation and technology, capital markets have kept pace with this integration. The study of international finance has therefore become essential and builds upon the understanding of theoretical concepts of finance and their adaptation to the international context. The course coverage includes historical perspectives and foundations of international finance, the foreign exchange markets and exchange rate determination, exposure management, financial management of a multinational firm. The course also helps students examine the current economic landscape through topical discussions of current economic and political development and their impact on international finance.
