Now updated and reorganized, Alan Shapiro's Foundations of Multinational Financial Management, 6/e emphasizes broad concepts and practices, and provides a clear conceptual framework for analyzing key financial decisions in multinational firms. The text treats international financial management as a natural and logical extension of the principles learned in the foundations course in financial management. Thus, it builds on and extends the valuation framework provided by domestic corporate finance to account for dimensions unique to international finance.
Shapiro 6e is primarily intended for an undergraduate audience; but it is suitable for use in masters-level courses when there is not time to cover the full range of topics. This text assumes no prior knowledge of international finance.
From the Publisher
The approach of this text treats international financial management as a natural and logical extension of the principles learned in the foundations course in financial management. Thus, the book focuses on decision making in an international context. Numerous examples, both numerical and institutional, illustrate the application of these concepts and techniques. The emphasis throughout is on taking advantage of being multinational. This book is distinctly different from Shapiro's other texts, Multinational Financial Management, 4/e, in that the chapters are shorter and simpler, have more examples, and are less technical because of its reduction and/or elimination of the mathematics used. --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.
