Course Description

Thanks to the economic liberalization in several countries over the last few decades, the world has witnessed an exponential increase in the free flow of capital across countries, even more so in emerging economies. This has resulted in a globally interconnected ecosystem of banks and financial markets engaged in foreign exchange transactions that are continuously growing in volume, sophistication and complexity. That, in turn, has attracted a plethora of participants whose explicit intention is to either profit from or hedge against the heightened level of risks in the foreign exchange markets.  

This economics and finance course will unravel those complexities and help you gain a comprehensive understanding of foreign exchange markets: the underlying theories, the instruments traded and how the associated risks and potential adverse outcome are addressed/redressed using several techniques such as currency derivatives.

First of all, I want to appreciate this organisation for putting in place such a platform as this, to enhance easy and effective learning, All through The period of this course, i have enjoyed video clips teachings and also reading the course write ups following the video. Its being a most productive session even though i was unable to finish my weekly graded assessment and final exam due to unresponsive network challenge in my location. However it an excellent that actually brings education into your room and gives no room for excuse. I also want to appreciate Prof PC Narayan (Course Instructor) and Divya Pareek (Course Moderator) for timely information and taking out their time to teach us,it being an awesome one and the half month of properly explaining and analysing the various topic to my clarity.Its a well done job. Thank you all very I can wait to take on another course.

I am an electrical engineering graduate and at the time of writing this review I'm planning to purse MBA in finance. I did this course mainly to supplement my MBA admission application and to get an idea of what would the courses after joining a B school be like. Having interest in finance and have completed some other finance MOOCs I didn't find the material to be challenging but it was great addition to knowledge. The part of the course that I liked most was where macroeconomic issues related to foreign exchange rates were touched and the role of central banks in foreign exchange markets. Professor PC Narayan has also beautifully explained some current issues like China artificially manipulating value of it's currency and how it does that. So, doing this course has provided me with a vocabulary to help me better understand foreign exchange issues. This has not only enabled me to understand macroeconomic issues better but also giv...

So, doing this course has provided me with a vocabulary to help me better understand foreign exchange issues. This has not only enabled me to understand macroeconomic issues better but also given me knowledge to participate more effectively in discussions related to international and domestic trade and how everything around us is dependent on foreign exchange markets. As a person with informal experience in this field this course was a valuable addition to my knowledge.
