Module assignments


This course is an introduction to corporate finance. It covers typical tools and techniques used by financial managers in making investment and financing decisions, and it provides insights into their theoretical foundations. The concept of time value of money and net present value is discussed in detail, first under certainty, and then in the presence of uncertainty. We will examine the relationship between an investment’s risk and its return, and discuss ways to derive risk-adjusted cost of equity capital. In addition, the course provides insights into firms’ main sources of equity and debt financing, like shares, bonds, bank loans, or private equity. The topics covered in the course are relevant to decision-making in various areas of business management, including operations management, marketing, and in particular corporate strategy.
