|Language of instruction||English|
The main goal of this course is to provide students with a thorough understanding of major topical areas in financial management, including an overview of the most recent developments and the ways they are integrated into corporate practice. Students will learn how to evaluate major strategic corporate and investment decisions and to understand capital markets and institutions from a financial perspective.
Topic coverage includes: asset valuation, real options, capital structure, cost of capital, Hybrid Financing, corporate liabilities, Initial Public Offerings (IPOs), Mergers and Acquisitions (M&As), and Sustainable Finance. Throughout the course, practical applications of financial concepts and techniques will be carried out with the use of cases. Building on earlier, more fundamental courses in corporate finance and investments, the scope of the Sustainable Financial Management and Policy course drifts away from the simple technical analysis of corporate financial decisions to a high-level discussion of their strategic implications for the profitability and sustainability of the company.
