Students are introduced to the mechanics of the foreign exchange market, strategies to predict foreign exchange movements and derivatives used by multinational enterprises to manage foreign exchange risk. In addition, three broad categories of risk exposure specific to multinational enterprises are explained: transaction exposure; translation exposure; and operating exposure.
