    Course Description
    The purpose of this course is to develop an understanding of modern corporate finance so that students will have the conceptual foundations for making intelligent corporate financial decisions. In this course, you will be exposed to some of the most fundamental concepts in finance and to their practical applications in the financial management of firms. The course begins with the well-known issues of corporate finance such as capital budgeting analysis, capital structure decision, general issues in equity and bonds, and how corporations raise capital. Then attention of the course is put on option pricing theory which is applied to corporate finance problems such as valuation of warrants and convertible bonds etc. Throughout the course, theoretical analysis will be integrated with evaluation of the empirical evidence and analysis of specific examples.

    It is assumed that students have taken at least one basic finance course such as Financial Management (BUS207) before taking this course. Only English will be used in the classroom.
