Programme structure

The course provides an applied and practical approach to finance, enabling you to use the concepts, frameworks, and tools of modern finance to address topical issues. The programme is designed to enhance your understanding of corporate finance as a tool for making strategic decisions.

You will learn how to apply basic capital structure and valuation techniques to the analysis of strategic decisions, such as mergers and acquisitions, reorganisations, and raising capital. The course will then take you beyond the analysis of capital structure and valuation techniques, by focusing on interactions between financial and strategic decisions in corporations.

This course will address the following key topics:

  • Financial markets and project valuation

  • Corporate and competitive strategy; mergers & acquisitions

  • Financial distress and the interactions between financing and investment decisions; leveraged buyouts

  • Strategy for new businesses; going public and private.

Course outcomes
