INTERNATIONAL FINANCIAL MARKETS in Fall 2021 (BA3050)

Following an introduction to the International Monetary System and Foreign Exchange Markets, students explore spot and spot-forward arbitrage. They also engage in a FX trading competition using a demo platform. Once students absorb the essentials of financial derivatives (options, futures and swaps), we move to the practical application of these tools. Hedging theories and a basic tool-kit assist students in completing more complex FX and interest rate hedging exercises and case studies. Each semester we explore selected topics, such as Private Equity or the Regulation of the Futures Market, in collaboration with guest speakers.
