Course Description

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. Grades will be based on assigned problem sets and class participation (30 percent) and the final examination (70 percent).
