FINC 684 – Financial Modeling
This course covers standard financial models in the areas of financial statement analysis, enterprise valuation, corporate finance, portfolio selection, and option valuation. Financial models are built using Excel and throughout the semester, advanced topics and operations in excel are introduced.
FINC 645 – Mergers and Acquisitions
Mergers and Acquisitions represent a significant aspect of business life both in the U.S. and around the world. Indeed, many professionals will have experienced an M&A related event in their own professional careers. This class provides an overview of the process with a focus on its role in creating value. In particular, it examines current trends/deals in the M&A space, the legal framework in which deals are completed, private equity, valuation techniques, methods of restructuring companies that will create value, and shareholder activism.
FINC 632 – Multinational Financial Management
This class uses the tools of international finance to examine how market fluctuations and policy decisions made throughout the world affect exchange rates, domestic markets, corporate decisions, and personal wealth. The course is divided into two parts. First, it covers big picture issues such as the methods countries use to set and then manipulate their exchange rates, and then parity conditions and balance of payments as factors that affect the flow of money around the world. The second part of the course examines specifics such as trading in currency futures options, international investing, and dealing with exchange rate/political risk.
