Programme Overview

This module provides individuals with a holistic view of the entirety of corporate finance. At its heart, corporate finance focuses on two basic questions –financing (how to raise money) and investing (how to spend that money). Focusing on six key ideas, almost all of which have won Nobel prizes, students will learn how to find the best ways to answer these two questions. They will apply these ideas to analyse project investment and corporate valuation, the best forms and ways to raise capital, why corporate governance is necessary and how to handle situations where the markets are not efficient.
