The global integration of financial markets has made it increasingly important for multinational companies, banks, fund managers, securities firms, corporate financial advisors, central banks, think tanks and international organisations and institutions to have a clear understanding of the theory and practice of international banking and finance, and how banks affect the economy. Familiarity with the latest techniques in international lending and borrowing, asset and liability management and risk appraisal is also an essential requirement for those involved in the global money and capital markets.
