This corporate-finance course focuses on corporate policy and the tactics that increase the value of the corporation. The course starts by stressing how managers interface with the capital markets to learn the return required by the firm's different investors. This required return, or cost of capital, is used later as the key variable to assess whether capital-investment proposals can create value for stakeholders. Prerequisites: Restricted to Darden students.
