Objectives

The broad coverage of the course makes it relevant for students interested in Corporate Finance and Treasury Management, Portfolio Management, and Trading. The objective is to communicate to students the present development of international economic and financial theory shaped by the effects of our changing world economy.

Contents

The course is organized around 3 modules + an introduction:

  • Introduction
  • Exchange Rates and Open-Economy Macroeconomics
  • Risk Management: International Financial Instruments
  • International Corporate Finance

Because Finance implies calculations (valuations, risks metrics), the course will put a special emphasis on them enabling students to address the main questions and issues they will face in their professional life in Finance.

Course slides will be made available to students 2 weeks in advance of each session. They will include course supporting slides + advised readings + exercises (solutions to exercises will be sent 1 week after the corresponding course is taught).
