TCE BidStats

Description:
Corporate finance covers the financial knowledge you need to run a firm, whether the firm is a multi-billion dollar international conglomerate or a three-person start up. Accelerated Corporate Finance will combine the material from Finance 1 and Finance 2 in an intensive one-quarter course. We will cover valuation (discounted cash flow, multiples, and real options), capital structure (how firms finance themselves and how they manage risk), and payout policy (should firms return capital to investors and if so how). For more details, you should read the descriptions of Finance 1 and Finance 2. The logical concepts will be covered in class, technical skills and intuition will be developed in class and through online exercises, and then the logic and tools will be applied to a set of valuation, financing, risk management, and payout cases. Given the pace of the course, students are expected to be prepared to put in the extra effort in class and outside of class. Basic finance knowledge (discounting) and accounting is assumed

Pre-requisite: Business Analytics I (DECS-430). Business Analytics II (DECS-431) and Accounting for Decision Making (ACCT-430) are recommended and may be taken concurrently.

Prerequisites:
All Students: DECS-430-A OR DECS-430-B OR DECS-433-0 OR ( DECS-438-A AND DECS-439-B )
