Introduction to Financial Management

International Financial Management

Currency Crises and International Capital Markets

Working Capital Management


I like to collaborate with students where we learn about finance to better understand corporate management and business careers as well as personal money management. The recent global financial crisis emphasizes the importance of finance as a life skill even if you study in another discipline. Come explore the many miracles in finance and ponder the difficult real world questions corporations, governments and individuals face today.
