The course focuses on the description and development of international financial markets and instruments available for companies in financing and mitigating risks associated with international operations. Globalization and internationalization of companies are elements that determine its evolution, where today we face a very troubled situation difficult to predict. The currency market is one of the most important aspects highlighted along with the products and tools available to cover the exchange risk.

Also, develop the main products and financial instruments on which supports the risk management and financing of exports and investment in the short medium and long term.


Goals and Student Profile


We can disaggregate the goals of the module as follows:

  • Understanding how the currency market and its implications for the development of an international operation. Methods of exchange risk hedging.
  • Know how to use the collection and payments mechanisms in the international sale and purchasing, to minimize the risk of the same.
  • Differentiate the various financing structures applicable under the operations carried out in an emerging or a develop country.
  • How the terms and conditions of trade affect the financing of operations.
  • Analyze and identify what type of funding is the most viable according to the operating characteristics: type of contract, seller, country and guarantees.
  • Develop of credit insurance for exports, both from government and private sectors.
  • Coverage of risks indifferent phases of a project or contract.
  • Mechanisms and instruments to finance operations efficiently in terms of the risks borne by the seller.
  • How to get in each case the goal of the exporter or contractors: that the financing would be truly and become an instrument that gives viability to any commercial operation.

At the end of the module should be clear that the financing of operations is not an isolated and tight, but instead is linked to all aspects of a project (technical, logistical, commercial and so on…) and must be taken into account at all times to be truly effective. So the funding, offered by the seller to the buyer, his/her client becomes a differentiator element and often decisive for the signing and execution of a commercial contract.

Specified time period and Place


Theoretical presentations alternated with practical exposure so as to see their relationship with results in business. The interrelation between theory and practice is a methodology in which students must be involved. This methodological issue will be used for both business executives and professionals, and for recent graduates who want to join the same course.

Several case studies are sent from those that companies have been facing in real life for students, with the relevant knowledge acquired, to do the analysis between the different lines of action that may arise and choose the one considered more realistic and adjusted to the case. The student should become accustomed to making decisions and understand the implications of them.

Case studies and readings will be sent to participants through the virtual campus. At the same time chat forums or debate centres may be created on campus or virtual in which the views of the participants will be contrasted. . These tools will be used by the students to contrast their different points of view.

Virtual Campus is a tool that allows a much more fluid relationship between students and teachers at personal and on line level.

Teaching the course will take into account how the student intends to apply the knowledge acquired to the final project at the end of the Master.
