Cash flow is the lifeblood of a business. It travels through every artery of business activity. A stable positive cash flow is the yardstick that measures business success and is the basis of increasing shareholder wealth. A healthy cash flow is the result of careful asset planning and management, intelligent selection of financing instruments, and implementation of well thought-out plans that integrate, direct, and monitor all aspects of business operations.
Consistent financial success only occurs when a company pursues a strategy that is sensible within the context of the competitive landscape it faces and the strengths it possesses or develops that produce a competitive advantage.
The corporate finance program fuses business strategy, asset selection and financing, financial forecasting and planning, and cash flow management into a powerful model that creates understanding of a business as an economic system; a model that is real-world applicable to good decision-making. Specific topics such as mergers and acquisitions, international finance, hedging, dividend policy, and others are woven into the analytical framework. Students also have an opportunity to develop sub-fields in accounting, investments, or international finance.
