Today's Featured Project

Trade Finance is a 240-page wikified coursebook for use at university level. The course was developed as a foundational part of Michigan State University's Open CourseWare project and was published on Wikiversity (as well as on the Michigan State University's Open CourseWare site) as a part of the project. This is an example of government grant money being used directly for the creation of open educational resources. The course comprises 8 modules: Political and Economic Risk, Risk Mitigation Techniques, Commercial Risk, Payment Methods, Selecting Payment Methods, Financial Plan, Short-term Financing, Medium- and Long-term Financing.
