Overview: The final project for this course is the creation of a financial analysis and planning report, including a presentation to the executive management team. For Milestone Three, submit a draft of your international market analysis (Component 1: Section IV).
Prompt: Milestone Three should contain the following critical elements:
International Market Analysis: Analyze the market positioning of the firm in one foreign market. Examples of foreign markets can be found in the firm’s annual report. From secondary sources, pull the exchange rates between the U.S. dollar and the foreign market currency and use linear regression to predict the exchange rates for the next year. Lastly, analyze the different risk management tools used by the firm (for example, hedging, insurance, and so on).
Guidelines for Submission: Your draft must contain all of the elements listed above. It should be at least 5 pages in length (excluding the title page, references, supporting calculations, and appendices) and should follow APA guidelines. You must include calculations and appropriate graphs, tables, references, and other appendices as needed to support your written analysis. Cite your sources within the text of your paper and on the reference page
