SYLLABUS 134A : Corporate Finance N. Mehra Fall 2009           ‘Complex problem solving requires abstraction from the many details that clutter untrained thought processes; and the practice of abstraction is itself a highly difficult and extremely valuable skill. Probably no single attribute better distinguishes the top level of business managers from their less successful colleagues than the ability to "see through" details to a feasible solution. Clarity of thought can be learned. It is learned best, I believe, from practice - from studying abstract models of reality; from solving simplified problems repeatedly according to the same methods that are to be applied eventually to real problems.’ Richard Roll. Required Reading: 1. Ross, Westerfield and Jaffe, ( RWJ) Corporate Finance Irwin/ McGraw Hill 2009 (8th Edition). 2. Class notes. These can be accessed on GauchoSpace.
