ENROLLMENT RESTRICTION: This course is the second half of the semester-long two-course sequence of Accounting and Corporate Finance. To enroll in this course, students must enroll in Professor Broome's spring section of Accounting and they will automatically be enrolled in this course. Students who have completed one or more university level corporate finance courses or have practical training in corporate finance are not eligible to enroll in the corporate finance course unless they obtain instructor permission. Please read the Accounting course description for complete details.

This course takes a financial and economic perspective of the corporation. The central theme is understanding the sources of value for the firm from the perspective of the manager who must make financing choices (sources of funds) and investment choices (uses of funds) to maximize the value of the firm. The major topics of the course include: time value of money, discounted cash-flow analysis, capital markets, market efficiency, cost of capital, capital structure theory and practice, capital budgeting decisions, and firm valuation. The course covers topics taught in the core finance course of most major MBA programs. Students will be responsible for handing in problem sets from the textbook. Grades will be based on assigned problem sets and class participation (30 percent) and the final examination (70 percent).
