MBA 737 examines business finance, including both corporate financial management and investments. Building upon prior course work in business environment and financial accounting, this core course in finance provides the concepts and tools for the rigorous analysis of financial decisions based on fundamental principles of modern financial theory. Topics covered include financial statement analysis, stock and bond valuation, interest rate determination, capital budgeting, risk and return, and capital asset pricing. In addition to the study of managerial finance, students participate in a team project that emulates the equity analyst role in valuing a corporation and making investment portfolio decisions.
