Week #1 Discussion Questions: In capital budgeting, the financial manager identifies investment opportunities that are worth more to the company than they cost to acquire. For the company you selected for your business plan: What process do you use to evaluate capital investment decisions? The process used to evaluate capital investment decisions is called capital budgeting. This planning process starts with identifying potential investment opportunities, estimating those investment, operation and implementation costs, estimating the cash flow or benefit, assessing any risks involved and making an educated decision on your best capital investment option (“The 5 Steps to Capital Budgeting,”n.d.). What capital budgeting methods do you use (e.g. payback period, IRR, NPV)? There are, essentially, six methods of capital budgeting decision criteria. The six capital budgeting methods are Net Present Value (NPV), Internal Rate of Return (IRR), Modified Internal Rate of Return (MIRR), Profitability Index (PI), payback and discounted payback. While most firms would proceed with using only one or two of these methods, all are calculations are performed on computers, so the value of each lies in what your particular business is looking to achieve. Each method will give a slightly different insight into a go/no-go decision (Ehrhardt et al., 2017).

    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.
