FINC71-601: Corporate Finance

Description

This subject bridges the gap between financial theory and practice through an in-depth examination of an organisation’s three key financial decisions -- the investment (i.e., capital budgeting), the financing (i.e., capital structure) and the payout (i.e., dividend). This is undertaken within the context of responsible corporate governance, supported by appropriate quantitative models and applied through contemporary case studies focusing on boardroom decisions.
