Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

The teaching is given in the form of lectures mixed with computer exercises, calculation exercises and a concluding seminar around a project.

The project is used throughout the course and contains problems that are solved during the course. The work with the project gives an ability to solve the tasks in areas that can be found in technology driven and innovation driven activities.

The course has a strong connection to entrepreneurship in technology, as research is carried out in that area at the school, and the teachers themselves work as entrepreneurs in innovation intensive technology

In the course, it is also brought up how a sustainable development can be handled in financing contexts.

Intended learning outcomes

The course intends to give basic knowledge of central models and analytical tools in corporate financing. On completion of the course, the student should be able to:

  1. Describe the organisation of the financial market
  2. design a company's financing strategy
  3. describe and calculate how the company's capital structure can influence the company's value (also with consideration taken to a sustainable development of the activities, including environmental aspects),
  4. describe, calculate and evaluate the cash flow of different investments and the financial consequences of these investments.
