Course aim

The objective of this course is to provide a better understanding of corporate finance issues confronting
entrepreneurial firms. The issues will be explored by considering the differences between firms for which
the standard corporate finance model is appropriate and firms for which the investment and financing
issues are interdependent. An objective of this class is to further develop the framework used for thinking
about finance issues and develop experience in applying this framework to making useful business
decisions. Although the learning objectives will be focused on entrepreneurial ventures, they have direct
application in more standard corporate, investments, insurance, and banking finance.
