The topic introduces students to international business and banking transactions and their impact on financial decision-making within an organisation having an international perspective. The topic will include study of the international monetary system and foreign exchange rate determination, foreign exchange risk analysis and management, international investment decisions and the financing of international business operations.
The focus of this topic is the financial management environment and issues faced by international business enterprises because of their international operations. Many financial management issues are common to domestic and international businesses. Businesses with international operations have available to them economic advantages and opportunities that are not available to enterprises which only operate in domestic economies. International businesses also face additional risks because of the cross-border nature of their business. Taking advantage of these opportunities and managing these additional risks with the financial markets and banks are a recurring theme through the topic. Emphasis will be given to managing the multinational corporation and banks, but many of the issues discussed in the topic are also relevant for firms with more restricted international business dealings.
