International Finance

Economic developments across nations' borders affect the world's economy, which specialized financial experts study and use to help businesses. Read on to find out more about international finance as well as education and career options in the field.

Inside International Finance

As financial operations are increasingly influenced by the global economy, financial managers and analysts are expected to be experts in international finance. These professionals oversee the management of money, investments, banking and credit on an international level. They often develop financial accounting systems and financial projections for the transactions of multinational corporations. In addition, international finance managers are faced with special challenges unfamiliar to professionals working within a single country, such as the fluctuation (or inflation and deflation) of foreign currency, international exchange rates and the risks they pose, as well as global tax law.

Education Information

There are undergraduate and graduate degree programs in finance, accounting, economy and international business that may prepare students for the field of global finance. However, master's level programs might be best for those looking to become financial managers and higher executives within multinational corporations. Programs typically include courses in business law, international trade, finance, economics, cultural studies and other relevant subjects. One who works in an international field may also benefit from fluency in a foreign language. The following articles from Study.com provide more information about the choices available for students in international finance.
