This is a case-based course aimed at deepening your understanding of how to apply corporate finance concepts in a wide variety of business situations. In particular, we will try to build on concepts in valuation techniques and capital structure theories covered in FM422 and see how to apply those tools in a systematic and rigorous way when approaching real-life corporate finance problems. Examples of topics include working capital management, capital structure, payout policy, initial public offerings, risk management, and family firms. Students will have to read up on cases before class and be prepared to discuss them interactively in class.
