FINANCIAL POLICY FINC 5133 Fall 2008 Location: Bayou 2122 Meeting Times: Wednesday 7 – 9:50 PM Instructor: Timothy B. Michael , (MBA) PhD Office: 3121.33 Phone: 281-283-3193 (office), cellphone _________________________ Email: michael@uhcl.edu Homepage: http://members.aol.com/TBMichael/mypage2.htm I also keep a blog at http://uhclmba.blogspot.com Secretary: Judith Thompson; 281-283-3185 Office Hours: Monday 4:30-6:30; Wednesday 2-6, and immediately after class. Other times by appointment. I am always available by phone or in person. Texts: Brigham & Ehrhardt, Financial Management (12th Ed.) , Thomson South- Western, 2008. You can also use the 11 th edition, but you will have to get some assignments/readings from the 12 th edition during the semester. In particular, the 12th edition has more homework problems (that's a good thing) and you are responsible for finding out what they are and working them. Dixon, Hugo. Finance: Just in Time . Texere, 2001. Readings & Cases: I will ask you to read articles from academic journals and/or popular business sources such as The Wall Street Journal . These will be handed out in class or made available for download in the online Reading List . In addition, your case assignments will be handed out to groups in class. These will probably come from Journal of Finance Case Research . Calculator: I recommend that you have a financial calculator for this course. If you plan to purchase a financial calculator during the semester, be sure to buy one that will do Discounted Cash Flow Analysis (net present value or NPV ) and internal rate of return ( IRR ). The standard BA II Plus by Texas Instruments is an excellent choice (it has a hard shell), as is the HP 10bii (although this one is very fragile when carried in a book bag). You are responsible for learning how to operate your calculator and learning how to apply it to the techniques discussed in class.
