New Fall 2021 MBA Corporate Finance Courses

The Finance Department is excited to introduce a new curriculum of MBA corporate finance education. The goal is to provide students with more flexibility in choosing topics of interest and designing one’s own learning path. It also enhances instructor specialization. The main change is twofold. First, two existing 4-credit courses (FINA 6241, FINA 6242) are broken down to a set of 1-credit topic-based courses. Second, we add new courses on highly-demanded topics such as Working Capital Management and Private Equity. The Corporate Finance Topic Tree will give you a good idea about the overall structure of the courses and the possible learning paths.
