Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

The course discusses the interplay between firms' financing and their real decisions. The course attempt to connect the theory of corporate finance with real world case studies.
Lectures will introduce the theory of corporate finance based on agency conflicts and some related empirical evidence. The course covers the property rights theory of the firm, agency conflicts between stakeholders and how they can be managed by contracts, agency conflicts and financing constraints, financial contracts as incentive contracts, debt overhang, risk shifting, and free cash flow problems.
Case studies will deepen the understanding of the aforementioned topics. Students will prepare these case studies beforehand and they will be discussed in class.

The course consists of lectures that cover fundamental theoretical models and relevant empirical papers. In addition to the lectures the course will also discuss real world cases that illustrate several key mechanisms. The course requires active participation by students.
