02U1309 - principles of finance -

The course covers a range of topics in corporate finance starting with capital budgeting, CAPM and other valuation instruments. The course then proceeds identifying the driving forces behind capital structure decisions and choices over debt and equity finance. In this context we will also discuss financing frictions that differentiate the functioning of perfect capital markets from imperfect capital markets. A second part of the course covers some specific topics in corporate finance: the decision to go public, mergers and acquisitions, corporate governance issues and the role of sustainability for investment and financing decisions.
