This course will provide students with an opportunity to pursue research on financial management issues. Students will be asked to choose a topic in finance that is consistent with their overall professional goals and then research this topic in depth. Class sessions will include a mixture of class discussion, examination of case studies, and presentations on student topics. A seminar approach --which encourages inquiry, questions, and discussion of current events -- will be utilized. Students may do additional readings and discussions, field or research projects, or case study analysis on-line. Students should check the course site in Sakai for on-line assignments that may begin prior to the first class meeting and throughout the semester for ongoing projects and discussions.
