Course Objective

This course is designed to give the student an understanding of the basic terminology, structure, and importance of international finance. This includes study of foreign exchange (FX) markets and instruments, FX risk, political risk, hedging of these risks, and evaluation of foreign projects.

Office Hours

I will be out of the country for most of Summer 2, so arranging face-to-face office hours will be challenging. However, there will be “virtual office hours” during which I will be attending the office hour chat room on Blackboard under discussion (see the Course Outline below). All virtual office hour sessions will be archived for later access, in case you are unable to attend but want to check out what was discussed. There will also be a separate area within discussion board for office hour-type Q&A.
