Omschrijving This course will provide students with an overview of the theoretical and empirical literature on the main themes in international financial institutions and governance. The aim is to provide students with in-depth knowledge of how multinationals finance their operations and investments, taking the perspective from the supply side. During the course we will discuss what role (international) banks, stock markets, different types of investors (such as institutional investors, hedge funds, sovereign wealth funds, etc.) play in financing these companies. We will also discuss the consequences of the different types of finance for the governance of these companies. We will deal with these issues by discussing a number of academic articles on related topics. Moreover, we will discuss cases describing the role of various suppliers of finance and their consequences for the governance of multinationals. These cases will be prepared by teams of students and presented during tutorials.
