Course Detail

International Corporate Finance (35210)

Course Description by Faculty

  • Rajan, Raghuram
  • Content
    This course will explore the challenges of corporate finance and investment in an integrated (and possible de-globalizing) world economy. How should one optimally organize the location of production, control, and financing? What kinds of new concerns emerge when the whole world, rather than just one's domestic economy, become the arena of decision making? How does decision making depend on the environment one is doing business in? We will also have optional guest lectures outside class.
