Course Overview

All business entities need finance to survive and thrive. It is needed right from the establishment of any business. Converting an idea into business, starting a new product line, hiring employees, setting up an office, advertising the products and all day-to-day, minor or major activities of a business requires finance.

The need for finance is forever prevalent in an organization. This need gives rise to corporate finance. What should be the optimal allocation of funds? What should be the mix between fixed and current assets? How should the profitability of different investment prospects be evaluated? How will the firm finance these investments?

Corporate finance deals with the management of finance functions in an organization. Any business needs to make three major finance decisions: investment decision, financing decision and dividend decision. These decisions are further divided into multiple segments. The assemblage of all these facets resides under the umbrella term of corporate finance.

What will be the ideal mix between debt and equity when it comes to acquiring these funds? What capital structure will suit best to a firm? How can a balanced trade-off between profitability and liquidity be achieved?
