Description: This course examines the finance fundamentals that control how organizations make decisions and measure success. During the four weeks, students will use models to conduct financial analysis and planning; determine where and when to raise capital; identify and mitigate potential risks; and decide whether to invest profits or return them to investors. In particular, the course will cover “how to use valuation techniques to make sound business investment decisions. Explore how to manage a company’s financing in order to support value creation, such as through choice of capital structure, liquidity management, hedging, and payout policy decisions. Finally, apply your new knowledge to propose the financial restructuring of a real-world company.” Students will learn through readings and video lectures.

Review: No reviews.

Additional Note: According to Professor Almedia, students should come to class with a basic understanding of statistics (probabilities, averages, standard deviation and regression analysis), financial statements (balance and cash flow statements), and algebra. This course is also the fourth part of an Improving Business Finances and Operations specialization offered by the University Illinois.
