This course will focus on the applications of key concepts in corporate finance and implicitly extend the topics covered in “Principles of Corporate Finance”. There will be three main topics covered in the course. The first topic is corporate investment. We will consider various methods used by firms to evaluate investment opportunities. The second topic is financing decisions. We will cover how firms finance their operations using debt and equity. The third topic is valuation. We will learn methods used to value companies and specific transactions such as mergers, acquisitions, and leveraged buyouts.  Each topic will be addressed using both theoretical material provided by the professor and weekly case studies with questions and solutions.
