Corporate Finance is about companies, investors, and their interaction in financial markets. Essentially, companies make decisions (how to raise capital, how to invest that capital, …) and investors react to those decisions by bidding the company’s stock and bond prices up or down. During this course we will look at this interaction from the point of view of both companies and investors, with a special emphasis on companies.
