ECON 3210 - International Economics and Finance

3 Credit(s)

This class explores broad issues in international trade and shows how related policy choices impact the economy. Students will learn how and why trade benefits the economy as a whole, but can also negatively impact certain groups within the economy. A major focus of the course is on the determinants of currency-exchange rates and the risks business entities face due to fluctuations in exchange rates. Similarly, the class examines the tools companies use to hedge against this risk and describes how basic financial tools can be adjusted to account for exchange-rate expectations and differential tax rates in international project valuation. Because it covers a significant portion of the CFA curriculum, this course is essential for students interested in obtaining the CFA credential. (Spring) [Graded]
