Corporate Finance

The Corporate Finance Concentration track goes in depth in the analysis of the main concepts of corporate management. The goal is to have a broad CEO/CFO view. Corporate financing, growth strategies and M&As, and choice of domestic vs. international expansion will be examined in detail. The module will provide participants with an integrated framework to select corporate financing policies and their links to expansion strategies such as M&As, a framework to analyse international projects at the selection stage as well as the implementation and currency and country-risk management stage, advanced tools required to manage complex single-purpose projects, and a set of tools to choose financing at the start-up stage of the firm, as well as the terminal restructuring and distress stage.
