Objective of the Course

Unlike domestic finance, international finance is
subject to exchange rate fluctuation and market
imperfections. Understanding various international
financial markets and exchange rate determination
systems is a must for international business
practitioners. In addition to these issues, other topics
of the course would be international fund flow, the
balance of payments, the determination of exchange
rates, exchange rate risk management, international
trade payment and financing techniques, and
international financial and trade institutions.
