About the course

Gain critical insights into corporate finance–the fundamental framework for corporate decision-making–with Rotman’s Corporate Finance for Executives.

Combining intuition and analysis, we explore the central pillars of corporate finance. Our expert faculty will guide you through how to use valuation techniques and concepts so you can build your understanding of critical decisions that ultimately determine the value of the firm and its value to its stakeholders.

We will address questions such as

  • How do you estimate the value of companies and financial securities?
  • How do you determine the value of a project?
  • How do you evaluate risk and expected return?


By the end of 6 sessions, you will be able to:

  • Use the DCF technique to value streams of future cash flows
  • Apply the NPV criterion to determine if a project will create value
  • Estimate the values of business and financial securities
  • Estimate the cost of equity of a company based on its beta
  • Calculate a firm’s weighted average cost of capital
  • Understand how leverage does and does not affect cost of capital

Gain insights into the way businesses and projects are valued and the associated concept of cost of capital. We will show you how to determine if a potential project creates value and to estimate the value of companies and financial securities.
