Course Objectives

The course explores the complexities of corporate financial management in an international setting providing students with a thorough understanding of international investment and financing decisions.
The aim of this course is then to give a broad picture about international financial markets and international corporate finance moving from the needs of the firm to the financial instruments and services available to cater to those needs. Subjects that are covered include: international demand for equity and debt financing, the international market for corporate control, exchange risk and market imperfections and structured finance deals. The main goal is to offer both a clear framework and a set of operative tools to understand the relationship between firms and international financial systems. The whole structure of the course is applied, involves several real-world cases that are discussed in class, and is oriented to develop capabilities to understand and use international finance methodologies and practices used around the world.
