Have you ever wished to understand all the critical aspects of international finance that seems to be understood by only a few people, such as exchange rates, money markets and international financial institutions? Then this course on International Finance will set you up on the path to world financial intelligence. You will explore the fact that a country’s economic policies are the leading indicators of the government’s goals and its planned use of economic tools and market reforms. Discover that countries have different cultural dimensions that influence their preferences, thereby separating countries from one another. This knowledge is critical when it comes to how an organisation positions itself in other markets and regions. The concept of current account deficit, a key indicator of how well a country performs economically, is discussed. This concept refers to a scenario where the value of goods and services imported is greater than the value of goods and services exported.

At first, presented are the economic factors taken into account when businesses intend to set up operations in foreign countries. Then, the course will discuss the concept of exposure management. This notion states that once a company has identified its exposure level and determined the critical exposure, it can hedge its position by adopting operational and financial strategies that have cost-benefit and operational implications. Explore the international financial market, a worldwide marketplace in which buyers and sellers trade financial assets such as stocks, bonds, currencies, commodities and derivatives, across national borders. Gain insight into the money market and capital markets' critical components, which will give you an understanding that will set you apart from colleagues and competitors. Unpack the eurocurrency market, a significant finance source for international trade because of its ease of convertibility and the absence of domestic restrictions on trading.

Next, you will learn that capital mobility refers to the extent to which savers can move funds across national borders for buying financial instruments issued in other countries. You will gain insight into bootstrapping, a statistical method that reduces the noise and identifies the outliers in the data collected from market participants. Raise working capital by understanding the different financial instruments that are used to grow working capital. These include commercial papers that are unsecured, short-term debt instruments, inventories and short-term liabilities. You will be taught that trade promotion is an umbrella term for economic policies, development interventions and private initiatives to improve its trade performance or a region within a country. Finally, you will study the duty drawback schemes, world justice project rule of law index, international property rights, and foreign trade promotion. This course will be of interest to Corporate Finance students or those professionals in international business or international finance. Why wait?
