Description: This course examines the investment, financing, and related policy decisions faced by a corporate financial officer. We will study several frameworks for evaluating corporate projects that expand on the capital budgeting issues developed in the core finance course. In particular, we will develop techniques for assessing projects with inherent flexibility (real options). We will also examine the interaction between investment and financing decisions, and how capital structure affects firm value. The final part of the course examines other important topics in corporate finance such as payout policy, risk management, and corporate governance.
