Corporate Finance


The aim of this course is to provide the students with essential basic knowledge and skills with respect to corporate financial decisions. It provides an understanding of the fundamental financial problems faced by corporations and teaches how to carry out simple corporate financial analyses, make decisions and communicate the results of the analyses in a comprehensible manner.

The course Corporate Finance is mainly focused on financing issues, that is, when and in what way should companies raise capital for their investment and operational activities. By studying the main activities carried out in a company as financing projects over multiple periods, emphasis is placed on evaluating all economic effects of a project with a long-term perspective and consequently being able to optimally make both investment and strategic decisions. With this goal in mind the course not only reviews the classical economic theories of frictionless markets and the optimal corporate decisions therein but also incorporates and analyses market frictions and how the optimal decisions are modified accordingly.
