Shapiro's Multinational Financial Management 9th Edition provides that conceptual framework within which key financial decisions of a multinational firm can be analyzed. The author's comprehensive approach is to treat international financial management as a natural extension of the principles learned in the first course in financial management. The book builds its coverage of international finance on the framework of valuation established by domestic corporate finance. It can be used in courses in International Financial Management and International Finance at the upper-level undergraduate or MBA level.
As the multinational corporation becomes the norm rather than the exception, there is an apparent need to internationalize the tools of financial analysis. This revised textbook provides a conceptual framework within which the key financial decisions of the multinational firm can be analyzed. All the traditional areas of corporate finance are explored from the perspective of a multinational corporation, concentrating on decision elements rarely encountered by domestic firms. The revisions are mainly of a pedagogical nature, enhancing the text as a teaching/learning vehicle. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR booknews.com
