ISBN: 9781118572382

Multinational Financial Management, 10th Edition provides a conceptual framework within which the key financial decisions of the multinational firm can be analysed.

This textbook gives you the tools you need to excel in your multinational or international finance course.


  • Focus on corporate practice through numerous real-world examples and vignettes that provide actual applications of financial concepts and theories.
  • Extensive use of examples and applications scattered throughout the body of most chapters.
  • Incorporates the changes in the world financial system, particularly the ongoing European sovereign debt crisis and the continuing development of China and India.
