Topics to be covered include: valuation, debt, equity, corporate governance and, to a limited extent, mergers and acquisitions. The course is aimed at students who intend to represent corporations either as outside counsel or in house counsel. If you are in the JD/MBA program note that this is not the same course as the Business School offers. That is a quantitative course that compliments this course which relies more heavily on qualitative analysis. A prior background in accounting, business or finance is helpful but not essential. Pre-requisite: Business Organizations (248).
