Fin 565 Corporate Financial Strategies

This course extends the corporate finance topics introduced in the core graduate finance course and aims to deepen understanding of the strategic issues and techniques associated with financial decision making. The perspective is that of the CFO of a corporation but also considers other stakeholders. Topics may include risk management, capital budgeting, financing decisions for established and entrepreneurial firms, special topics in firm valuation, working capital, and determination of the cost of capital. This course serves as background for other finance elective courses and builds skills in key financial principles. We emphasize economic underpinnings and application issues through extensive applied case analysis using spreadsheet and risk-based tools.
