The global economy and its financing is changing fast and under high uncertainty. While the flow of payments and investments across borders are continuously increasing dramatically, so has the volatility of the exchange rates and of the interest rate. How do these affect all kind of businesses, companies engaged in imports and exports, and domestic companies facing competition? What can a manager or an entrepreneur facing such issues do in order to limit his/her foreign exchange exposure and interest rates risk?
The approach is to treat International Finance as a natural and logical extension of the principles learned in the foundation course of Financial Management.
Moreover, in the recent years, technology has penetrated more and more finance and business field into the so-called fintech and digital transformation and innovation of most of the life areas, but especially business and banking, as well as financial institutions. Therefore, a new module Business&Digital Transformation is included, thus enabling broader understanding of the trends and new challenges, and also the business oportunities, new business models and implementation of business transformation.
The course will be taught as a combination of short lectures, examples presentation, exercises and cases study working groups.
