CORPORATE FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT
Learning outcomes of the course unit
The course analyses the most important issues for the financial management of a
firm. The main aim of the course is to provide students with the methods and help them acquire
the sensitivity required for the realisation of a corporate project,
while maintaining equilibrium as regards both the balance sheet and relations with
financial backers. The growth of the firm can, in fact, introduce various elements of
financial imbalance and these aspects must be identified and managed in a timely manner.
The creation of value and the governance of the reliability level are the issues that
demand the most attention and care from the entrepreneur and the
financial director. Good financial management can lead to the lowering of
the cost of capital and boost the firm's chances of success
on the market.
This course is a follow-up to the Corporate Finance course of the second year.
