This course covers a selection of important topics in corporate finance theory. It provides an in depth literature background for students interested in Corporate Finance Theory, and prepares students interested in conducting research related to Corporate Finance Theory. Students are expected to be familiar with core concepts and have working knowledge from first‐year micro and finance. We will cover classic Corporate Finance papers and recent contributions/research questions, particularly financial contracting, incomplete contracts, control and corporate governance, as well as Dynamic Corporate Finance. If time permits, we may also invite some scholar(s) to give guest lecture(s) about their fields/topics of research.
