In the Corporate Finance track you learn to analyse complex financial decisions to uncover the underlying forces and help organisations set their strategies. This track is one of 7 tracks you can opt for in our Master's in Finance.
Companies of any size continuously face financial decisions. The oft-stated primary goal of corporations is to maximise returns for its shareholders, but getting there involves thousands of possibilities. During the Corporate Finance track you explore such decisions at length. You will gain insight in the framework for corporate financial decision-making related to capital structure, valuation, funding, corporate restructuring (mergers and acquisitions) and corporate governance.
Do you have a sharp mind and a fascination with numbers and governance? Do you see yourself working with a bank or a consultancy firm? Then this is your track within the Finance master’s programme.
Apart from the 6 general courses of the full programme, you will follow 3 track-specific courses and electives.
This course provides a state of the art understanding of modern corporate governance. It exposes students to powerful empirical research methods used to determine the effects and effectiveness of individual governance mechanisms. The latter is essential as governance fails under a checkbox-ticking approach but instead is highly context-contingent.
