Professor Bill Megginson will serve as both course coordinator and instructor. He is Professor and Price Chair in Finance at the University of Oklahoma’s Michael F. Price College of Business and Visiting Professor of Finance at Université Paris-Dauphine. He is also Executive Director of the Privatization Barometer. From 2002 to 2007, he was a voting member of the Italian Ministry of Economics and Finance’s Global Advisory Committee on Privatization. During spring 2008, he was the Fulbright Tocqueville Distinguished Chair in American Studies and Visiting Professor at the Université-Paris Dauphine. He received the University of Oklahoma’s top research prize, a George Lynn Cross Research Professorship, in April 2010
The seminar will expose students to the most important current and historical literature in four core areas of corporate finance — capital structure, payout policy, corporate governance, and capital acquisition. This will principally be a readings course, in which students will read, present, and discuss academic articles during class. Instructor lectures will supplement paper coverage. A secondary objective of this course will be to train students to professionally evaluate and critique existing literature, and to acquaint them with the academic review and publication process.
Each day will be divided into four, two-hour (50-minute hours) sessions. Each topic will be introduced by a lecture by Professor Megginson, after which three academic articles will be presented and discussed each session
This course is designed for finance, accounting, and economics students pursuing doctoral degrees from European universities. It can either be a supplemental course for students at universities that offer formal doctoral courses or as the principal topical course for students at universities where doctoral coursework involve directed self-study. This course should be taken during the first year of doctoral studies, after the students have completed foundational courses in quantitative methods and microeconomic theory
