International Financial Management

when 3 July 2016 - 28 July 2016
language English
duration 4 weeks
credits 6 ECTS
fee EUR 1100

The subject of this International Financial Management (IFM) course is to provide a conceptual framework within which the key financial decisions of the international firm can be analyzed. The approach is to treat international financial management as a natural and logical extension of the principles learned in the foundations course in financial management. Thus, the course builds on and extends the valuation framework provided by domestic corporate finance to account for dimensions unique to international finance.

The IFM course presumes the knowledge of basic corporate finance, economics, and algebra. However, it does not assume prior knowledge of international economics or international finance and is therefore self-contained in that respect.

IFM focuses on decision making in an international context. Analytical techniques help translate the theoretical guidelines used by international financial managers into specific decision criteria. The course offers, as well, a variety of real-life examples, both numerical and institutional, that demonstrate the use of financial analysis and reasoning in solving international financial problems
