Course Prerequisites: FIN 357 Course Objective: Students will learn the financial tools needed to make good business decisions, that is decisions that create value. This course will teach students a structured system of financial analysis that introduces a degree of objectivity to corporate financial decisions. The course has a corporate focus, but the skills you develop can be relevant in an entrepreneurial or financial investment setting as well. The course will focus on how value can be enhanced via business and financial restructuring and through mergers and acquisitions. The first part of the course considers value creation through investment decisions, or more specifically external growth through mergers and acquisitions. The second and third parts of the course consider value creation through the use of leverage and dividend decisions. The fourth part of the course focuses on value through corporate restructuring. And finally real options will be studied in the final portion of the course. Course Materials: The required textbook is copied Brigham and Daves, Intermediate Financial Management , 9 th edition, Thomson Southwestern. Selected chapters have been copied and are available at the UT Copy center. Course notes, assignments, etc. will be posted on Blackboard. In addition, students are encouraged to read a periodical that covers events in the financial world. The Wall Street Journal is one good candidate; more global in outlook is the Financial Times.
