About this course:

Currency devaluations are a major cause of global economic chaos, thereby forcing multinational companies, as well as importers and exporters, to make long-term decisions that are undermined by daily trading occurrences. Currency traders, including hedgers, arbitrageurs, and even speculators now are challenged by 24-hour global currency trading with markets made for almost any currency. This course is designed to help students, managers, and aspiring traders meet the challenges of managing currency operations, capitalizing on opportunities, and reducing the risks of foreign exchange swings. Instruction identifies major areas of currency risks, strategies, and organizational structure requirements. Participants are provided a framework for analyzing the causes of expected exchange rate movements and how to deal with them. Students also review foreign currency events, both past and current, focusing on the implications of these events on future capital flows and growth.
