【Message】
Corporate finance is a field where new things are always happening, and where firms’ innovations keep us keenly interested. A key aspect of practiced-based financial theory is that it teaches us the skills needed to make good decisions when facing new problems in a changing environment. With this aim in mind, corporate finance offers useful principles and frameworks for future managers.
