Course Outline Course Title: Instructor: E-Mail: CORPORATE FINANCE LIONEL ARANHA profaranha@outlook.


OBJECTIVES: To give the student the capacity to understand the theory and apply, in real world situations, the techniques that have been developed in Financial Management..

To give the student the big picture of Corporate Finance so that he/she can understand how things fit together. To show the student that Financial Management is fun.

METHODOLOGY: The course is taught with a mixture of lectures, presentations & cases. (The objective of the case method in finance is to use the logic of financial theory to arrive at coherent and defensible conclusions when faced with real world problems presented in cases. One should keep in mind that there is no right answer to a case; different assumptions may lead to different solutions and decisions. There are, however, good arguments and weak arguments. Furthermore, there is always a theoretically correct methodology and technique that are proper for the problems encountered in a case.) In every aspect of the course, students are required to adhere to high standards of conduct. Note that some of the cases and homework assignments used in this class may have been used before at other institutions. Students may not use material or solutions from other institutions (e.g. posted on the Internet), unless otherwise instructed in class for a particular assignment.
