ECOM104 - Applied Corporate Finance

Credits: 15

Module Convenor: Dr Giles Spungin

In this module we are going to explore how firms finance their activities and the resulting capital structure. We will consider the circumstances where the choice of the source of funding is irrelevant and those in which the choice of capital structure can affect the firm value, due to tax considerations or informational frictions, for example. We will then explore how the global environment affects firms’ financial policies. In the final part of the module we will talk about the impact of mergers and acquisitions on the value of the corporations involved.

Assessment: 80.0% Examination, 20.0% Coursework
