This unit, provided online by RMIT University and Open Universities Australia, will give you an excellent introduction to the international aspects of finance. International finance differs in many ways from domestic finance, and this unit will take you through the challenges common to the area of international finance, including problems arising from an absence of common currency and how the pricing of capital assets may differ between countries.
By the end of this unit you will understand the importance of international finance and be able to distinguish international from domestic finance. You will also be able to investigate the institutional framework that allows international payments to be made, and the means by which movement of capital is accommodated.
