You may be concurrently enrolled in ACCT 2203, ECON 2203, STAT 2023 and Finance 3113 however the Finance Department does not recommend this schedule.

E-book (E-book included with Aplia) : Essentials of Managerial Finance , by Besley and Brigham, 14 th Edition, Thompson-Southwestern, 2008. Calculator : Students will need to have a Texas Instruments BA II Plus financial calculator and the accompanying instruction booklet. This is the calculator your instructor will use to work finance problems in class. Finance majors may want to purchase Texas Instruments BAII Plus Professional calculator for use in advanced finance courses. Optional Materials : The Wall Street Journal (WSJ) is our recommended publication for current events. Reading the WSJ will enrich class discussion, and it is very possible that your instructor will have class project(s) that rely on The WSJ. Business Week, The Economist , Barron’s , Forbes , and Fortune are also excellent business publications. Purpose : To provide the student with knowledge of the basic concepts, problem-solving techniques, and applications of financial management. These fundamentals of finance are used in personal money management and in decision-making by business firms. Operational and strategic financial topics include allocation of funds, asset management, financial information systems, financial structure, policy determination and analysis of the financial environment. Attendance : Class attendance is very important to your success in this class and your grade is partially dependent upon your consistent presence and/or participation. We do understand, however, that many Spears students represent the university on athletic teams and other official activities. If you are required to participate in official university, college, or departmental activities or military training you must provide your instructor written notice at least three business days prior to your absence and receive confirmation from the instructor prior to the absence. It is your responsibility to confirm this in advance. 1
