The main objective of this course is to provide students with a sound, yet applied understanding of theories and concepts of multinational corporate finance. The course offers an advanced and comprehensive discussion of the theory on various strategic decisions that managers of multinational companies (MNCs) take. The major challenge that managers of MNCs encounter is the different types of risks that MNCs face due to doing business in dynamic international environments. Therefore, the course particularly focuses on managing certain types of risks; such as, foreign exchange rate risk, country risk, interest rate risk and commodity risk, in addition to mastering on how to undertake a direct foreign investment (DFI). The course also discusses corporate governance practices around the world which influence how MNCs are run and ultimately how they create value for their stakeholders.
