General course Description:
The focus of this course is to apply the fundamental ideas of corporate finance to real-world problems. This course is a follow-up to the Fall course in Managerial Finance in which the basics of finance and valuation were covered. We will explore both how to make the acquired knowledge practical as well as to deepen our understanding of the core principles of finance. During the course we will analyze cases covering a wide range of topics such as capital structure, private equity and venture capital, mergers and acquisitions, hostile takeovers and leveraged buyouts, as well as bankruptcy and financial distress. These cases provide an opportunity to bridge the gap between theory and real-life situations. Students are expected to develop their own spreadsheets and provide recommendations based on their analysis of the case material. This course was formerly known as FINANCE 224. An accelerated version of this course is offered as FINANCE 331.
Course Style: A Substantive course teaches the law, theory, and policy in a particular area of law
