Equity Finance: Course Description

Equity finance is defined as a company's accessible instruments and markets. This Open University course explores the subject, introducing MBA students to key terms and topics. In it, students review the different types of shares, or units of ownership, and share warrants, which allow the shareowner to attain shares at specific stake prices. The course also explores private equity and venture capital and examines the reasons why some companies choose and manage not to list on the stock exchange. It then focuses on the processes of taking a company public, as well as the practice of issuing additional shares, called seasoned equity offering. Students go on to explore cross-listing, which is the process of listing shares on both a domestic and at least one foreign market. Other key topics covered include equity buybacks and monitoring equity performance. This is estimated to be a 6-hour course.

'Equity Finance' consists of outline notes, references and questions with answers.
