Corporate Finance

Corporate Finance is the bottom line for American business. In today's globally competitive and fast-paced world, financial problem-solving and innovative insight can mean the difference between corporate success and failure.

Our module in Corporate Finance will prepare you for a career in corporate financial decision-making, consulting and financial analysis. Professor Carl Tack goes beyond financial theory. The goal is to provide a deeper, more practical understanding of financial analytical tools and to improve your ability to interpret and analyze problems faced by corporate controllers, treasurers, CFOs, and their staffs.

Your experience will be enhanced by field trips to top-name companies and institutions like the Securities and Exchange Commission and Legg Mason Capital Management to the Export-Import Bank and CACI International. It's a great way to keep on top of what is going on in the industry and make good contacts.

The result -- true real-world insights and applications that will benefit your own bottom line -- a career in corporate finance.
