Managing Financial Resources

This course will enable you to recognize corporate financial problems and opportunities, communicate effectively with finance professionals, and participate fully in the financially driven decision-making process. The first part of the course is concerned with learning about a corporation from analysis of its financial statements and forecasting financial performance using pro forma statements. We then focus on major financial decisions: determining the optimum capital structure, measuring and managing financial risk, and planning long-term access to capital for the organization in both debt and equity markets. Lastly, we examine methods of corporate valuation and explore opportunities to enhance shareholder wealth through corporate mergers and acquisitions.
