Corporate Finance

Susan White, Michael Faulkender, USMx

Develop the ability to identify and resource high-value strategic initiatives and ensure a high rate of return for your firm's investments.

Successful business leaders are good at spotting high-value strategic initiatives for their organizations, raising the capital necessary to fund them, and knowing when to forego or walk away from low-value activities. In other words, the best business leaders are experts at maximizing the value of a company’s financial, human, and material resources. This highly-prized ability, although remarkable, is borne out of an application of the core principles of finance, that anyone can learn.

In this course, you will learn about the structure of financial markets, the techniques and language of finance, and the various responsibilities of the corporate financial manager. You will also learn what creates shareholder value, how to value corporate securities, how to analyze risk-return, and the financial techniques for evaluating corporate investments.

What will you learn

  • How firms finance their operations and fund growth
  • Financial techniques for improving decision-making
  • How to use the concepts and terminology of finance and speak the language of a CFO
