Course Description

Fluctuations in coffee prices represent a great challenge for any business that trades green coffee. Price fluctuations - defined as volatility - can lead to uncertainties in costs, product prices, earnings, credit availability, among others. Over the years, many businesses have struggle to maintain profitability when prices changed abruptly over a short period of time.

In order to mitigate volatility, organizations can implement effective price risk management through different strategies, as well as optimize profits using various techniques.

Unlike traditional price risk management training, this course is meant to equip students with tools and practical tips on how to implement price risk management strategies in their business and optimize profits.
