EF5042: Corporate Finance

Fall 2018–2019

Topics include theories of discounted cash flow valuation (DCF) and relative valuation using market multiples. Click here for more course information.

Despite being an introductory course in corporate finance, I emphasize on practical applications of valuation methodologies. Students are expected to complete group projects that are critiqued in class by industry practitioners at the end of the semester. My objective is to facilitate student interactions with practitioners in Hong Kong who extensively use the valuation techniques taught in the course.
