Mateev Finance

This is an upper-level elective for MBA students. The objectives of the course are to build your skills, frameworks and knowledge in entrepreneurial finance. The skills and frameworks are similar to those employed in traditional corporate finance, but are more focused on cash flow, returns and recognizable value. The context of entrepreneurial finance is different than that of traditional corporate finance. Most companies are at a relatively early stage of maturity and, by definition, are not publicly listed on exchanges. Entrepreneurial Finance is of growing importance every year, both domestically and internationally. This course will use a combination of case discussions and lectures to study entrepreneurial finance. While the teaching notes emphasize general principles and tools, class cases will cover firms in many different industries and settings including those outside the United States. The sequence of course cases will facilitate going beyond the instant situations to discuss similarities and differences in the practice of entrepreneurial finance across industries and across countries.
