This course will focus on corporate financial management in an international context.   We begin with a brief overview of the nature of international business activities and the evolution of multinational enterprises. Next is an introduction to multinational tax issues, international trade and international trade finance.  We then cover the foreign exchange market and exchange rate determination, as well as other international financial markets and instruments.  This sets the stage for learning about a variety of international financial management topics, including foreign exchange exposure measurement and management, financing the global firm, and foreign direct investment decisions.
