Corporate Finance is designed to be a practical, overview course. As such, the objective is to draw
together the various topics in managerial finance and present a unified, integrated view of the overall
subject areas. The course builds upon and reinforces the theoretical and institutional framework learned
in introductory business finance courses, and primarily through the vehicle of case analyses, seeks to
apply these concepts to real or simulated business situations.
Students will experience the solution of financial problems in real settings and to
encounter the complexities caused by the intersection between theory and practice.
In this course we will study the application of financial theory in a series of real case situations.
Topics will include financial analysis and planning, understanding the cost of capital, capital structure
execution, capital expenditure analysis, valuing the enterprise, mergers and acquisitions, and shareholder
There will be an assigned textbook and a series of
cases. The emphasis is on the cases; the textbook is for background reading and preparation. All students
are expected to come to class prepared to discuss the issues in the cases. You will be called on for your
views and opinions.
