Financial Communication and Investor Relations --- Financial Communication and Investor Relations is a course that helps students to learn about the flow of information in financial markets. We take a managerial perspective and lay out the factors that impact financial communication. This includes understanding your investors, creditors and other stakeholders as well as the role of financial intermediaries such as analysts and the media. We also will discuss the role of visibility and credibility in financial markets. While building this foundation, we will examine communication around IPO's, Mergers, Accounting Restatements, Activist Investors and Short Attacks, among others. The course will rely heavily on cases and student participation.
