This course builds on the concepts and tools developed in MGT 812 and values firms with more complex financial and accounting situations than those discussed in MGT 812. Both lectures and cases will be used to develop this material. One session explicitly relates to environmental and social issues, and involves the valuation of a firm that produces ethanol that can be blended with gasoline to reduce petroleum extraction and refining. The case involves discussion of government policy (specifically, tax benefits to the firm and its investors) and the firm's overall impact on the environment and society.
