BUS 320 - FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT Section 003 Fall, 2007 Instructor:    Carl Davis Office: 2343 Nelson   Phone:  881-7399 or 434-4714 Office Hours: Anytime by appointment E-mail:  [email protected] Course Description BUS320 is a survey course in financial management that deals with decision-making concerning a firm's  sources and uses of funds.  The course examines the financial goals of firms, techniques for assessing a  firm's financial position, methods for forecasting a firm's financial needs, management of current assets  and current liabilities, decision-making regarding investment in fixed assets, and decision-making about  long-term financing and dividend policy. While the course focuses on firms organized as corporations,  the tools developed in this course can be applied readily to non-corporate enterprises. Course Objective Since this is a survey course, we will cover a lot of ground.  We will begin with a general overview and  then go into more detail on several concepts, financial instruments, and techniques used in financial de- cision-making.  My objectives for the course are: 1. To introduce you to the world of finance.  Anyone involved with the management of a busi- ness needs to have at least some minimal knowledge of business finance. 2. To introduce you to basic financial concepts such as the time value of money, asset valu- ation, and risk and return. 3. To provide you with a solid understanding of the basics of finance that will prepare you for  taking subsequent finance courses.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
