This course presents the foundations of finance with an emphasis on practical applications for corporate managers. We discuss most of the major financial decisions made by corporate managers both within the firm and in their interactions with investors. Essential in most of these decisions is the process of valuation, which will be emphasized throughout the course. Topics include criteria for making investment decisions, valuation of financial assets (stocks and bonds) and liabilities, relationships between risk and return, capital structure choice, payout policy and the debt different instruments for financing corporates.
