This course counts toward the following majors: Analytical Finance, Finance.

Taxes are a crucial component of the most investor’s asset allocation decision. After tax-returns are the portion investors keep. Taxes are also a crucial component of firm’s investment and financing decisions. Unfortunately, knowledge of how taxes work is often left to the experts. This means that many opportunities for creating value for firms and investors are missed. This course will not make you a tax expert. You will still need to hire a tax expert. Instead the objective is to teach you enough of the structure of tax codes (past, current, and future; US and non-US) so that you can ask intelligent tax, business, and finance questions before it is too late. The class is designed to fill the gap between an MBA who is well trained in finance and the tax experts that you will rely on in your career. We will first develop a set of fundamental tax and finance concepts. We then will apply this to a wide range of investment, financing, and risk management applications. FINC-465-0 is a prerequisite for the course but may be taken concurrently.

All Students: ( FINC-440-0 OR FINC-441-0 OR FINC-431-0 ) AND FINC-465-0 [[FINC 465-0 may be taken concurrently]]
