Taxes and Business Strategy: Course Description

The Sloan School of Management at MIT in Cambridge, MA, offers an OpenCourseWare class in tax planning that combines the relevant elements of both basic finance courses and basic tax courses. The class teaches students to recognize how to coordinate tax and general business strategies. Although the class focuses on taxes, it covers a mix of tax law, corporate finance and microeconomics. Additionally, students acquire understanding of the U.S. tax system and individual taxation where it intersects with corporate interests. The course covers implicit taxes, non-tax costs, marginal tax rates, corporate formation, capital structure, taxable and tax-free acquisitions and divestitures. Students learn through a combination of lecture notes and assignments that cover actual and theoretical scenarios. Business professor Dr. George Plesko teaches this course.

This OpenCourseWare includes a syllabus, required readings list and assignment instructions. Those interested in this free course should visit the Tax and Business Strategy course page.
