INTRODUCTION:
We are living in a dynamic global corporate environment where

create value within a corporate setting. This course has been designed
with the objective to enable you to understand the financial decision
making process and to interpret the impact that financial decisions will
have on value creation.

My role in this course is to help you master the essentials of corporate
finance. I pledge to give you as much assistance as necessary.

me for assistance in class.

TEACHING APPROACH
Teaching methodology consists of content based lecture and interactive
tasked based participation of the students to explore the subject. The
instructor will explain the key concepts and principles of the topic and
will work out illustrations or few problems in the class. The rest of the
exercise is supposed to be done by the students themselves. These
exercises and problems are not part of assignment; rather these are given
for practice and better understanding of the concept. At the end of the

1
class there will be a question and answer session and participation in it
will be considered at the time of overall assessment. However
assignment will be given from real business environment and case
studies. The teacher reserves the right to make any change in the course
outline, if required.
