Risk Mitigation Techniques: Course Description

The 'Risk Mitigation Techniques' OpenCourseWare offers an introduction to the many ways in which financial risk may be mitigated when dealing with international transactions. Because financial risk is inevitable in today's global economy, businesses are continuously searching for new tools to help alleviate this risk. Many related topics are examined in the class, such as rates of exchange and inflation. The course also includes an investigation of ways in which business professionals may lessen transaction exposure, which occurs when a transaction is made in foreign currency but has not yet been completed. Other risk mitigating techniques are considered, including swaps, forwards and spot trades. This undergraduate-level course is offered through the MSU Global Learning Ventures initiative.
