Assessing Commercial Risk: Course Description

The 'Assessing Commercial Risk' OpenCourseWare offers an introduction to the many ways in which businesspeople may assess the payment ability and risk of a potential investor. Many topics are covered, including credit bureaus and the value of credit reports. A thorough examination of possible payment methods, like documentary collections and letters of credit, is included in the course. Several mitigation techniques are investigated, along with a discussion of the proper time to implement each one. The five 'Cs' of credit risk assessment are discussed, as well as the additional three 'Cs,' which are relevant when dealing with an international transaction in a globalized economy. This undergraduate-level course is offered through the Michigan State University's Global Learning Ventures initiative.
