This article is based on the keynote address from the Eastern Finance Association meeting in South Beach in April 2010. In this keynote address, I discuss how to engage and motivate students by using the results from surveys of corporate finance professionals. Specific examples are given to motivate capital structure, capital budgeting, and payout. Actual job interview questions can also be used as a motivational tool to teach finance.
