and solving a range of practical real-life problems involving the application
of finance concepts. 2. To expose students to real-life problems facing finance
managers and other finance professionals. 3. To bridge the gap between
university corporate finance theory and corporate finance practice.

corporate finance from both a practical and theoretical perspective.
Academically, the course builds on the theoretical foundation laid in the
prerequisite earlier courses. However, this course takes a more
application-orientated approach, and is therefore largely case study based.
