The Corporate finance class

“Corporate finance is the most helpful course I’ve taken, and it works especially well in my internship”,  a second-year MBA told me last semester. Indeed, it covers quite a lot financial principles in the practical world, and also includes several cases; one group project and one simulation that help students to have a better command of the fundamental knowledge of corporate finance.

The online homework seems a little bit tough at the beginning, and I got many poor scores at first. This discouraged me a lot, to be honest. However, I do understand the ideas better through completing these assignments.

The group project topic we chose was “IPO analysis—Energy Industry in China”, which aimed to find the best time for a company to have its initial public offering in this specific industry.

KeyBank Case Competition – Davis Hull ’13 MBA

Can you say pressure to perform on a big stage?  This was our feeling leading up to the Key Bank Case Competition in Cleveland, OH on 2/24 – 2/25.  This was the first case competition that myself and the other members of our team had participated in. While we had done dozens of case analysis and presented plenty of times in class, this was different.

While we did not place in the competition, we learned so much.  We sat in on competitors presentations and saw different ways to convey our message.  We talked to the judges afterwards and found out exactly what they liked and did not like about all the different school presentations.   This feedback was useful as it helps us get better for the future.
