Management Science and Corporate Finance

The first part of the course is also designed for the curriculum AMCH as ?Basics of Management? (20 hours).

The course aims at introducing doctoral students to fundamental concepts and to theoretical research in management science and corporate finance. The first classes will focus on a few classic readings in management and organization theory, and then we will move to corporate finance. The main goal is to expose students to classic and fundamental background readings on the structure of Organizations, Decision Making in Organizations, and Corporate Finance. Specific Chapters will be selected for class discussions.

Prerequisites: The course will emphasize intuition over technical detail wherever possible, while more technical readings will be made available and discussed with students with a quantitative background. Those who are willing to catch up with some reading on their own should not have too many problems, under the Lecturer's supervision.
