Objective is to offer an inter-disciplinary education that puts corporate finance elements in context with a broad variety of real life situations ranging from Investment Banking to Private Equity to the corporate world. The language is an almost universal one, as is the modus operandi, and emphasis will be put on realistic problem solving as opposed to textbook approaches.

Accordingly, the course will also cover topics such operational and financial modelling which ultimately are a basic requirement for not only understanding valuation techniques but also for example to assess value creation in a Leveraged Buyout scenario.

Enriched with multiple and diverse examples from Jan Caspar Hoffmann’s extensive deal doing over the last more than 2 decades, the course will illustrate applied theory in a global and cross-border setting.

In order to achieve maximum practical relevance, select high profile guest speakers covering various disciplines will be invited to contribute to the sessions.

Course target is to enable students to understand – and be able to apply – advanced Corporate Finance topics in a real life setting irrespective of the domain in which it takes place.

The course is complementary to various other courses offered, namely “Private Equity and Venture Capital”, “Mergers & Acquisitions and Other Corporate Restructurings” and “Investments” with marginal, if any, overlap.
