Finance 3

QST FE 713

This course extends students' understanding of corporate valuation beyond that acquired by allowing for valuing firms with different capital structures (e.g., what happens to valuation when a firm levers up?). This practical knowledge is built upon an analytical framework about the costs and benefits of different forms of financing (debt, equity, hybrid securities) in different industries, time periods, and circumstances. When should firms use debt financing, and when equity? What is the impact of paying dividends; when should dividends be preferred to share buybacks, and when should cash be retained in the firm rather than paid out? This course will give students an insight into the answers to these and similar questions.
