Introduction to Corporate Finance

Overview

In the movies, corporate finance is full of white-collar crime and big paydays. But in the real world, it's more mundane than most people suspect. Although corporate finance seems like a byzantine web of rules and regulations, corporations largely face the same sorts of decisions as individuals looking to save for the future and make sound investments.

Michael R. Roberts is an award-winning professor of finance at the University of Pennsylvania's Wharton School, specializing in corporate finance and banking. In this course offered by the prestigious business school through Coursera, Roberts introduces the many factors that influence corporate decision-making, from interest and opportunity cost to taxes and inflation.

"Which actions create value? And while that's a complicated question, a sort of general answer would be to consider actions in which the benefits exceed the costs. But here's a little wrinkle, what if the costs and benefits arrive at different times?"

Michael R. Roberts
