Professor’s Guidance for this week’s LE:

Investing in the international market is a huge risk for any organization (Peng, 2009). It is key that the company gather historical data on the host country’s currency value fluctuation and import/export timelines. This is crucial. The deal you discuss today may not be executed in time to reap the full potential of the opportunity. You could be (Peng, 2009) negotiating a deal that may cost 15 percent more in a few months when the transaction is finalized. Worse yet, you may offer a promotion that costs you significantly more a week into the offering (Peng, 2009). Lock in currency rates and delivery dates in advance whenever possible. The less speculation, the better.
