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. Evaluation Grading is based on two exams and on periodic homeworks.The break down is as follows: Homeworks 20%. Midterm Exam: 30% Final Exam 50%

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
