International Strategic Financial Planning

This course will focus on the issues raised by financial transactions which relate to advanced topics in corporate finance and financial markets. The materials build on concepts learned in the initial finance course, with enhancements to recognize more complex instruments and approaches integrating finance with strategy, with particular attention to international transactions. In particular, the course will be considering the following issues: understanding risk management and hedging; the nature of derivative securities markets; merger and acquisition valuations and tactics; and alternate sources of funds such as convertibles and high-yield debt.
