Course Description

F712 - Applied Corporate Finance

Through the extensive use of case analysis this course provides a rigorous introduction to corporate value creation in globally competitive markets. Value creation principles and valuation frameworks are used to provide answers to such questions as: What is the most appropriate notion of value and how is it measured? How do we use finance to evaluate corporate strategies and determine whether they create or destroy value? How can firms effectively communicate corporate and financial strategies to financial markets? The objective is to familiarize students with the principles of value-based management as well as cutting-edge valuation tools based on modern finance theory. Students will also develop a proficiency in the technology necessary to implement this knowledge in a real-world setting.
