Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2017-2018.

This course develops the framework for evaluating the gains, costs, and risks of managing firms' assets and liabilities in financial distress, including periods of formal restructuring. It takes the perspective of financial managers at public corporations, as well as that of market participants ― e.g., investment bankers, analysts, legal professionals, regulators ― that monitor and evaluate corporate policies in distress situations. The course will do so going beyond standard textbook coverage, making sense of available research on financial policy, looking at what professionals think via field surveys, studying real-world examples. All of these elements are integrated and analyzed with rigorous methodology, but the point is to understand the economic objectives corporate policies really mean to achieve.

When Offered Spring.
