Contenu du cours

This course examines several areas of corporate finance that directly affect value creation for shareholders, as advocated by the CFA Institute. We will start with a discussion of the corporate governance system. Next, the significance of long term capital structure will be thoroughly explored in light of Modigliani and Miller's fundemantal research. In a modern corporation a significant amount of money is tied up in working capital, the lectures will also examine short term financial policies. Finally, the course will discuss various dividend theories and policies in relation to their likely impact on the company's share price.
