This paper covers the principles of corporate finance. The material builds upon fundamental present value concepts to examine corporate capital budgeting, capital structure, dividend policy and mergers and acquisitions. Students are expected to be able to critically evaluate the standard models used, and to have an appreciation of the recent research relating to their use. This paper will be taught in parallel with FINA311, but students will be required to study in detail the underlying theory and critically evaluate its use.
