Capital Structure Project assignment for a Finance course
When teaching the undergraduate intermediate finance course or MBA corporate finance core course, often instructors must provide students an overview and summary of where the financial literature stands on issues of capital structure. Most textbooks will barely cover the principles and facts without delving into the important findings in the literature. The main reason is shortage of class time to adequately and fairly do a literature review. This article surveys the extant literature on this important corporate finance topic and provides a brief summary that can be easily covered in a class period after students are asked to read it before-hand.
