2 Real-World Examples: Finance is an applied field. Though our focus will be on learning the key theoretical concepts, we’ll make use of a lot of examples from the real world. After this class, students are expected to understand the basic financial making decision in the real world. I recommend regular visits to http://finance.yahoo.com for a general understanding of financial markets. Course Purpose and Objectives: This course provides an introduction into business finance topics including the current institutional environment, financial planning, risk and return, capital budgeting and capital structure (including cost of capital). Basic tools necessary for analyzing and interpreting financial data will be developed. The focus is on corporations whose stocks are publicly traded, but most of the tools and concepts covered are applicable to other types of business firms and not-for-profit entities as well. An important objective of this course is to develop insights into the methods by which financial managers can create value for their shareholders. International considerations are emphasized.
