Finance is among the most stereotypically MBA things an MBA will learn.
Aim of 'Corporate Finance' is to help financial managers value assets and make informed decisions.
If you want to understand corporate finance, learn thoroughly:
- the implications of the Modigliani-Miller theorem
- the time value of money
- how to calculate the NPV of a project
- how to calculate the WACC of a project or company
- how to do a decent DCF
Putting it all together, you'd get something called a model. That model will tell you how much any asset that generates cash flows (such as a stock) is worth. People in business think that this might be useful to know.
More specifically, these tools are useful for evaluating the potential returns of various courses of action, including but not limited to capital investments.
