International Finance: the Role of Risk
This course offers an overview of the role of risk in finance. It covers the valuation of risky projects and related risk assessment tools. Financial assets are introduced and examined from a risk-return perspective. Risk management techniques, such as futures and options, are introduced in a non-technical manner. Finally, real options which allow financial managers to add value to projects are examined.
