MGMT 8620 - Financial Markets: Risk and Return, Capital Structure, and International Dimensions of Finance♦


(4 cr.) Students are provided with the opportunity to augment their core financial knowledge base through a survey of fundamental concepts in financial decision making in which markets affect firm decisions and societal outcomes. Through a variety of practical application assignments, students learn about the role, impact, and limitations of financial markets in society and how risk and return for firms is mediated and moderated by agency effects, information asymmetries, and both rational and irrational aspects of market behavior. Students examine the structure of international capital markets. They also explore and discuss the legal, ethical, and global dimensions of firm- and market-level financial economic decision-making theories and practices. (Prerequisite(s): MGMT 8030).
♦ Students may take this as a non-degree course, which means they do not have to be enrolled in a program. Contact an Enrollment Advisor [1-866-492-5336 (U.S.);1-443-627-7222 (toll)] for more information.
