You have studied in the class that the major areas of finance are: Corporate finance, Investments, Financial institutions, and International finance. Using the learning materials, identify and explain some of the skills needed in order to be effective in each of the areas. For example, one of the skills in the area of corporate finance would be to be able to develop a budget. Similarly for the investments area, one of the skills learned in the class was “ risk and return analysis”. For the international finance area, risk management, foreign exchange knowledge would be some of the skills needed. Additionally, you will also evaluate and incorporate the impact of technology, the economy, and the persistent pandemic on careers in the respective areas of finance.
