15.436 Cases in Corporate Finance: Bridging Theory and Practice
Focuses on components of decision-making in corporate finance, featuring cases that cover a broad range of advanced topics in corporate engineering, complex financings, and valuation. Cases and class discussions strike a balance between technical tools and finance theories that factor into important decisions on the one hand, and the higher-level strategic perspective of investment bankers, CEOs, boards of directors and large investors on the other. Case examples include IPOs, convertible debt, rights offerings, tender offers, leveraged buyouts, share recapitalizations, project finance, off-balance sheet SPVs, and bankruptcy. Students work in study groups to complete regular homework assignments and prepare for class discussion. Recommended prerequisite: 15.434.
