Corporate Finance Specialization Description

The corporate finance specialization encompasses a wide range of courses, from basic corporate finance to restructuring firms, and on to such subjects as private equity and venture capital. Corporate finance focuses primarily on financial issues at the firm level, such as how new companies raise capital, how companies decide on a capital structure of equity versus short-term and long-term debt, and the governance structure of firms. These issues hold relevance for students who want to understand the broad financial issues and choices facing firms and how these choices influence performance, valuation and risk.  A corporate finance specialization is useful for students who will work in corporate financial operations and in other finance assignments, such as fundamental company analysis, private equity, mergers and acquisitions, etc.
