Answer the following questions:
Choose any company with an international presence and discuss how it has dealt with accounting, transaction and economic exposure. You can focus on any one or more of these three areas. Your write-up need not be more than three or four pages. You may (and should) use publicly available information. However, you should not copy somebody else's analysis without attribution. You may cite, with attribution, any published analyses of your company's foreign exchange exposure management; you should, in any case, have your own original analysis, as well.
Example from Fall 2004 (No implication as to how you should or should not write your own report. Keep in mind, however, that plagiarizing from existing reports is bad, and can be cause for a failing grade in the course.)
Read any one of the articles below (1. through 5. only); write a one to two page summary of the arguments presented therein. On the last day of class, your group will be required to present the article in no more than fifteen minutes, using powerpoint slides. Each member of the team will have to participate in the presentation to some extent. At the end of all the presentations, there will be a general discussion.
The first four articles can be found on the course Blackboard site; the fifth article can be located on the library website by going to http://library.pace.edu and searching on the database JSTOR. (Go to library.pace.edu, then click on Articles via Databases, then choose the database JSTOR.)
This article can be found on Blackboard, as well. However, this is only for supplementary reading -- you may not make a presentation on this article.
