This field focuses on global capital markets through monitoring and examining trade practices across borders, global investment flows and movements in foreign exchange rates. This unit provides you with the skills necessary to understand and address some of the multi-faceted issues of the international financial environment. International finance draws upon ideas and techniques from various fields, including financial management, international trade, macroeconomics, and investment theory.
