Omschrijving The course deals with several risks that multinational companies are confronted with their operational or financial activities. In particular, the course focuses on international risks arising from several firm-level and country level factors, such as changes in exchange rates and prices of commodities, macroeconomic developments, governance and political instability. Students will read several background articles to understand the theoretical arguments and methodology, and make presentations. Students are also expected to analyse the impact of international risk components on activities of multinationals, focusing specifically on their consequences for corporate risk-taking or the value. Students are required to work in teams in order to write a team research paper. The discussion on their analyses will take place in tutorials.
