International Financial Management BEA706

Hobart

Introduction

Most businesses operate in global financial markets, and very few facets of financial management are as important as managing exchange rate risk. This unit is designed to provide you with the skills necessary to understand and address some of the multi-faceted issues of international financial management, with a key focus on understanding exchange rate behaviour, especially forecasting and managing exchange rate risk. Techniques will be studied and applied from various fields including financial management, macroeconomics, corporate finance and investment theory.
