This course deals with both theory and practice of international financial management. The goal of the course is to equip students with the tools and knowledge to deal with problems facing an international financial officer. Examples of those problems are:
• The multiplicity of currencies, and the attendant problems related to nominal contracts;
• The misalignment of exchange rates vis-‡-vis local cost and the attendant problems of
• The partial segmentation of capital markets producing potential differences in costs of
capital across the world; and
• The multiplicity of tax jurisdictions.
The course grade is based on a midterm exam (30%), final exam (45%), 4 written assignments (10%) and project/presentation (15%). Class participation and preparedness for class discussions of assigned homework problems and readings are especially important.
