This course aims to provide students with a sound understanding of the basic principles and practices of corporate finance. The course will start by equipping students with capital market theories (capital asset pricing model & efficient market hypothesis) and valuation techniques (present & future values). Then, it will cover the two key financial decisions a typical firm makes: how to invest (capital budgeting) and how to raise capital (capital structure). If time permits, it will also cover how firms return profits (distribution to shareholders). The course is designed to be accessible to students with a limited mathematical background. Grading will be based on weekly problem sets and a final exam.
