International Finance Short Courses
This International Finance course looks at the interaction of a multinational company with the international financial markets: how it raises finance from sources in addition to banks; the financial risks it faces and how it manages them (including how it uses derivatives). The syllabus also considers the application of time value of money to value investments and instruments, and considers the causes and characteristics of the global financial crisis.
