Welcome to the (online) class!
Welcome to the Finance Perspectives on International Strategy class. I look forward to working with you on topics around International Corporate Finance, International Capital Markets, and International Accounting. The class will be fully digital, and I will keep sessions where student presence is required to a minimum. However, I will update materials and inputs on learn@WU as we go, so please come back to this page regularly. Given the restrictions to regular teaching because of Covid-19, this class will be taught in an asynchronous online format. The final exam will (conditions permitting) be held on campus.
The core materials will be structured into modules, which correspond to what would be class sessions in normal times. Each class session will have a number of small presentation inputs (essentially, presentation slides with audio and sometimes video comments), readings, and group assignments. You can find the files in the file repository. The videos have an indication of which session they belong to and which part of the session they are in the title (e.g., the video starting with S1P2 is part 2 of session 1). Each session (except the first) starts with a short exercise that I encourage you to solve together with your groups (see learn@WU for which group you have been allocated to). After, I will discuss some new materials, and sometimes an additional reading. We will apply these new materials in small exercises and case studies. In some sessions, there will be small exercises to complete before the following session. Session 7 is reserved for your work on a case study.
Whenever you have a question or require consultation on academic issues, please reach out by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Looking forward to working with you!
