International Financial Management BEA706


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