EIB B225M: Corporate Finance and Banking: A Comparative Asian Perspective
This course explores major themes in corporate finance and banking in Asia drawing on the diverse experiences of regional actors. Systemic issues dominate the first third of the course, specifically the legacy of bank-centric finance, trends in financial deregulation and internationalization, and crisis. The balance of the course will examine decisions at the firm-level on issues such as corporate ownership, performance, and governance, and capital structure management, across both public and private debt and equity and balance sheet management through the use of derivatives and asset-backed securities. Open to students who have completed B200. One-half credit.
