Academic Term and Year
Today, managers need to understand the fundamentals of financial management to make good decisions. This course covers the issues in finance that a manager is likely to encounter. It will be taught in two parts. The first portion of the course will discuss the financial statements, cash flows and the time value of money. Once we understand these basics, we will discuss issues surrounding corporate financing including equity and debt. We will discuss capital investment and how a company decides to allocate its resources in a value-maximizing manner. We will also discuss risk and return and how it ultimately affects the company's cost of capital. The second part of the course focuses on applying some of what we learned in the first part of the course. We will also discuss special topics such as mergers and acquisitions and international finance in this part of the course.
