Course description: This course provides an introduction to international financial markets and to the management of the special risks arising from international transactions. Topics include the environment of international financial management, foreign exchange and derivatives markets, foreign exchange risk management and foreign investment analysis. The basic thrust of this course is to provide a conceptual framework within which the essential financial decisions of the multinational firm can be analyzed. The approach is to treat international financial management as a natural and logical extension of the principles learned in the foundations course in financial management. Analytical techniques developed help to translate the often-vague rules of thumb used by international financial executives into specific decision criteria. Examples will show students the value of examining decision problems with the aid of a solid theoretical foundation.
Methodology to be used:
Selected chapters from the main text will be discussed during the lectures. During the seminars simple calculations will also be presented to help the understanding of various concepts (e.g. in the case of hedging with options, futures and forward contracts).
For every week there will be assigned mini cases from the related chapters of the textbook. Students can chose one mini case during the semester of which they want to make a 10 minute presentation at the end of one of the seminars for 10 points.
For another 10 points students can present cases and applications from the chapters that were not elected to be the core subject of the course (Ch 5, 10, 12, 16, 18, 19, 20 - This task also includes short presentation on the topic of that chapter.), or can make a short presentation of a possible Bloomberg application.
For these 2x10 points students can work in pairs (maximum 2 students) or individually. More details on the mini cases and the presentation will be announced on the first week of classes.
Students can also get 0.5 points for attending each class. This means, that students will get 0.5 point for the lecture and for the seminar as well. Students can collect maximum 10 points with the attendance (on the week of the midterm exam, and the final exam no points can be collected).
There will be a midterm exam on Week 7. The midterm will be over the following chapters of the Shapiro textbook: Appendix 1A, 2, 3, 4, 6, 11, 14, 15, 17.
