Module code: ACFI 5021
This module provides students with a broad exposure to the political, economic and technical dimensions of the international finance regime. The regime is described - its institutions, markets and players - and the key adjustment mechanisms are explained - balance of payments, exchange rate systems, relative interest and inflation rates.
The role of finance in the competitive struggle between nation states and between multinational corporations to generate economic value is explored. Financial and risk appraisal of foreign trade and direct investment projects is demonstrated.
This module is ideally suited toward those who wish to specialise in international studies or finance. It develops investment and funding decisions in 'Accounting for Strategic and Financial Decisions' and complements the market-based hedging mechanisms taught in 'Risk Management'.
