This course provides concepts related to financial management of any multinational company functioning in several countries and thus dealing with exchange rate and interest rate risks. The hedging strategies against those risks are covered via money market and financial derivatives such as forwards, futures, options, and swaps. Profitable situations in the foreign exchange market are also described using locational arbitrage, triangle arbitrage, and covered interest arbitrage. Operational aspects of managing financially a multinational company are presented as well. The main textbook is Eun, Resnick, and Chuluun (2021), yet Madura and Fox (2020) can be also read for this course. There will be lectures and exercise sessions, where different problem sets based on lecture materials are solved together in class.


Midterm and non-cumulative final exams count for 40% each of grade. Individual or group ten-minute presentation of students (up to three people), on any subject of this course, counts for the next 20%. Students have a chance to improve their grades by earning additional ten points (max) through a written submission of solutions to problems covered in one of the entire exercise sessions of their choice. Attendance at classes is expected to pass successfully the course.
