It is the goal of the course to provide students with a holistic and in-depth overview of topics in modern Corporate Finance. The course structure is based on three consecutive steps. First, students will learn about the core functions of a modern firm, which is obtaining financing to fund projects, and pay out the proceeds of the projects to their owners. The covered topics here are capital budgeting, short- and long-term financing, capital structure theory, and payout policy. In a second step, students will learn how companies can be restructured to create value, either through Mergers & Acquisitions and Leveraged Buyouts, or in financial distress. In a third and final step, the course looks at corporate valuation from an intrinsic and relative perspective.
