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
