AEM 3240 Fall 2008 Course Outline 3 Course Content and Objectives This course focuses on basic managerial financial and economic decisions, corporate financial policy, risk management, investments, and personal financial decisions. The classes dealing with the mathematics of finance will focus on the time value of money and the incredible variety of real-world problems for which this concept is relevant. The lectures on valuation will serve to introduce tools which can be used to value securities such as bonds and stocks. The capital budgeting lectures and case discussions will introduce the economic and financial concepts which can be brought to bear on problems involving estimation of relevant project costs and benefits and the timing of those costs and benefits. Particular attention is paid to capital budgeting decisions such as whether to buy a new machine, build a new plant, and introduce a new product. Modern portfolio theory is introduced and applied to the problem of estimating the riskiness and expected return of individual securities, portfolios, and projects. Topics in corporate financial policy will be surveyed with the goal of making you aware of the financial policy alternatives available to management and the risks inherent in some of those policy alternatives. As such, the corporate finance section will focus on financing alternatives, the cost of capital and the capital structure decision, distribution policy, and mergers and acquisitions.

    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.
