MSFS 735 - Global Finance
This course will cover a wide range of material designed to give students a solid background in global business and finance.

The course will develop existing functional skills as well as introducing new topics in order to enhance an understanding of the context, players, practice and relevant techniques of global business and finance. Sessions will largely be readings plus case study driven in order to emphasize real world application and complexity. The sessions are intended to be interactive and will also involve working in groups.

At the end of the course students will have a critical understanding of the complexity and interconnectedness of many aspects of finance, and will have developed some key analytic tools to view these. 
Specific elements will include: 

- Financial modeling 
- Financial statement analysis 
- Capital budgeting 
- Valuation 
- Derivatives and Risk Management

The course will benefit students seeking to obtain basic corporate and capital market financial literacy and are interested in both the theory and practice of finance. 

Students should be curious about current financial topics and want to enhance their ability to understand and debate the salient issues. Students will become better equipped to understand these issues alongside the tradeoffs and uncertainties that different stakeholders might typically face.
