This is an introductory class on corporate finance.
This course is designed to give students an overview of the role of financial management in businesses and to facilitate understanding of financial concepts and their applications. It is also intended to develop some proficiency in the use of the basic tools and techniques employed in financial analysis, traditional as well as newer concepts. It is, therefore, to help students understand why corporate financial managers behave the way they do.
This course provides an overview of the modern theory and practice of financial management and focuses on two fundamental financial decisions; investment as well as financing. Beginning with discounted cash flow analysis, basic theory will be applied to the valuation of stocks, bonds,
and individual capital budgeting projects. Students will subsequently learn to price assets under
uncertainty, including the tradeoff between risk and return, portfolio diversification and Capital Asset Pricing Model. Next, the course will address the elements involved in financing decisions, such as, capital markets, financing sources, debt and dividend policy.
