LV-Beschreibung

Intendierte Lernergebnisse

This course provides an in-depth insight into the field of international financial management and how international finance managers identify, forecast and manage international foreign exchange risk.  The course introduces students to international foreign exchange markets and exchange rate systems, types of corporate exposure to foreign exchange, methods of forecasting and methods of hedging and managing foreign exchange risks.  Building on this, the course examines in detail international financial instruments used by financial managers including forward contracts, futures contracts, currency swaps, foreign currency bonds, and international stock markets.  The course also introduces students to the sometimes difficult role financial managers have to assume in making hedging decisions and financial manager liability under modern corporate governance codes.
