Successfully managing international trade requires at least a basic understanding of foreign exchange markets. What does it really mean when they say the dollar is strong? What determines the value of one currency in terms of another-- and why does it matter? This webinar will cover exchange rate basics. The presenter is Laura Wolff, CGBP, Past President and Distinguished Fellow NASBITE International and instructor of economics at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville’s AACSB-accredited School of Business. She’s helped thousands of students make sense of exchange rates. While there will be no final exam after this webinar, persons preparing for the CGBP exam with little trade finance background will find this webinar helpful. Trade counselors and those assisting small businesses with advice surrounding exchange rates should also attend.
