A program rooted in current economic realities

This introductory course is about key decisions made by treasurers or chief financial officers of exporting firms, multinational corporations and financial institutions. It does not require prior finance training. Specifically, it addresses the funding/financing and investment questions within a multi-currency setting. Special attention is devoted to Risk Management (including valuation of hedging instruments such as forwards, futures, swaps and options) as it permeates international funding and investment decisions.

The intensive summer program is designed for students aspiring to careers in finance at large and small corporations with extensive international dealings, banks, pension funds, private equity firms or hedge funds as well as "globally reaching" financial institutions.
